A Christmas Peter Pan! Kids love performing A Christmas Wizard of Oz!

"I've done ArtReach shows and love how accessible they are for children. The sound FX are always delightful and easy to manipulate.  You are doing very, very good and important work. Thank you so much. I can't think of much else more important than infecting children with the joy of creation."
Roberta Gore, Church & School of the Ascension, Westminster, MD

"I must tell you I love your plays.   I have travelled all over the country and taught and love the feasibility and adaptability of the plays.  I have done "AThousand Cranes" with Middle School and done "Peter Pan" with elem and MS and currently working on it with HS (This is their first "real" show-----They love it!)

"It was beautiful. The young leads were particularly gorgeous. Tears in the final scenes. Well done to everyone."
Adelaide - Gemini Collective Production, Australia

"We did 'A Thousand Cranes' and it turned out great! The audience loved it, and we got the community to help us fold and collect cranes which we used as part of the play backdrop, then we sent them off to the Children's Peace Monument in Hiroshima - 1700 or so cranes!! Wonderful story."
Marcy Donnelly Del Castillo, Fremont Civic Theatre, CO

"We had two wonderful performances. The play's theme is very appropriate for these times. The students did a superb job portraying the message, which brought me to the verge of tears."
Dorothy Loveland, Bayan School, Bahrain

"The music teacher came up to me and said it brought tears to her eyes.  The notes you sent with the play were very encouraging and helpful.  It was very special to me to get a chance to have my students tell Sadako's story."
Diane Purvis, Teacher & Librarian

"As one child said... ”I really didn’t get Sadako when you first told us about her, but now I can see how important she is." Thank you for such a great script that was easy to stage and which had such a beautiful and moving message!"
Mary Westall, St. Therese Primary School, Sydney, Australia

"Thank you for writing such an inspiring children's play.  I've been teaching drama for three years and never have my students been more engaged with a story."
Anne Mantha, St. Mary Magdalen School, Hazel Park, MI 

"I hope the audience comes away from this play and thinks about peace.  I hope they realize to always remember to listen to the wisdom of our children.”

Pontotoc Community Theatre, Pontotoc, MS

The script follows Carroll's story as you know it, infused with holiday fun entertainment: everyone is getting ready for Christmas.  The Mad Hatter has a silly tree decorating party, the Cheshire Cat can't understand why her stripes are green and red and the Queen of Hearts hasn't an ounce of holiday spirit.
