"Thank you guys so much for offering this program to students. Most, if not all of my students, are not humanities/theatre/arts majors, so I never know how they will accept a program like this. However, in the years that I've been doing the Les Miz workshop, it has never failed to make an impact with my students - and then when we see the show, the end result in most cases is new lifelong theatre and arts lovers. It's a great win-win."
