“The kids were great! I know many of them and it was such fun to see them perform so beautifully. It was my first time seeing your New Voices performance and I think you are all doing a great job with the kids. The show was fun and entertaining and the material was tailored so that each child shone. Well done!”
Victoria Kress – Youth Theatrical Agent, Abrams Artists
“(I’m always) super excited to head to the Paper Mill Playhouse for their New Voices show! Having trained some amazing performers I know this night will prove to be no different! It’s one of my best scouting field trips of every summer!”
“Once in a blue moon, when I forget about the sweaty commute and the disappointments that inevitably come as I fight to get work for the clients who have put their trust in me, I see a bunch of kids on stage with a song and dreams of stardom in their heart like I once did, and I remember how lucky I am to spend so much time doing a job I love.”
“Thank you so very much for all you do to get these kids trained and then give them to us to care for!”
Andrew Femenella - Musical Theatre Department, Telsey+Company
