Coming to another SJCT production with kids was wonderful last night. Because it reminded me of one of SJCT’s strengths. Thank you for loving the kids. I absolutely love how you involve the kids, and not just a few of them. You involve as many as you can to give everyone the magical experience. And you find ways to involve each of them as much as possible on the stage. What a blessing it is for these kids – I still am amazed that you cast 80 orphans in Annie! I don’t know any theater that loves the kids like you do. And I love how you don’t just throw them on the stage, but you take the time to teach them the fundamentals of theater and what they are actually doing on the stage while they are up there. With that many kids it would be easy to skip that step.
Also, thanks for teaching these kids the focus and discipline that you do. My girls know exactly what is expected of them and it’s because you have taught them at a very young age how to behave in theater. They know where the line is and know what is expected and I think that is great.
Thank you for taking care of our families involved. I really do feel completely comfortable with my kids being at South Jordan. I always know they are safe, in a family friendly environment, and I never worry about them at all. Great job on the show!
