EXPRESSIONS


 ​“After everything transitioned to a virtual world, our son was not fond of the thought  of yet another ZOOM activity. However, after the trial class with George Street  Playhouse, he was pleasantly surprised with how much he enjoyed it and wished to continue. We could see the spark of excitement, and he has enjoyed the experience since.”
