Here are a small handful of posts that were pulled from social media sites that parents had written.
I’m often asked what is about Showtime Theatre Company? Why do you always post, promote, and rave about them... the answer? ALL OF THIS!!! The teamwork, the effort, the caliber, the camaraderie, the lessons, the mentoring, and most importantly what happens I️n between! Before the curtain rises, after the show is over, and all the stuff in the middle. If you have a child who is passionate about singing and dancing and acting, this is where it’s at! Have a child whose more into computers and tech stuff? We have it! Oh... what about building, painting, organizing.. we have that covered too! What about those who are a little shy or not confidant... or just what they consider AVERAGE? Showtime takes average and makes it feel extraordinary! Through this organization I have found love, acceptance, friendships (that I️ wouldn’t trade for the world), talents I didn’t know I had, some I️ knew I️ had but was too afraid to use them, and a sense of accomplishment that is unparalleled! Showtime Theatre Company has changed our lives and given our kids a taste of something bigger than we ever anticipated! It’s taught me so much about myself. My children have experienced things they would have never had the opportunity to if not for this amazing group! We are blessed! Jen and Rob thank you just doesn’t seem enough! You started something that is taking us all and moving us to a place of love, friendship, excellence, and family regardless of race, religion, level of talent, financial status, etc... we are all better because of what you have started! THANKS FOR FOLLOWING YOUR HEART and sharing your amazing gifts with everyone you meet! ITTTTSSSSSS SHOWTIME!!
"The technical training, experiences, and life-long memories Showtime provides for their students is grand in scale. My daughter struggled with speech, pronunciation, and with self confidence when talking in public. Through her involvement with Showtime workshops, festivals, and live theater, as well as the personal one-on-one coaching she has received from the company, my daughter’s confidence level is “off the charts” and it has extended from the stage to her daily life. After just one year, my daughter was inspired to audition for a summer arts program for the gifted and talented, and landed one of only two spots accepted from her school district for drama. I am so thankful that Showtime and the sophistication of performance that it provides, is a part of our community. The training and the opportunity to be a part of such lavishly displayed live theater makes Showtime Theatre Company our jewel."
"Our family wanted to send our gratitude to everyone who gave my girls the opportunity to flourish in what they love. It has taught them much about support, confidence and dedication. Super fun experience and they still cannot stop talking/singing about it. They are counting the days until the next one."
"Thank you all so very much for welcoming our family into the Showtime family! We all had an amazing time from start to finish. Safe to say that this won’t be our last show! My 4 year old twins and our oldest daughter are ready for their stage debut now too! 😉 Much love to you all!"
"Our two young ladies had the awesome privilege of being double cast as the genie in Aladdin Jr. These girlies have known each other since first grade and have been sharing the stage together since Showtime's first show, Annie. However, this show was different because this was the first time they had ever shared the same role. Words cannot describe how incredibly proud I am of both of them! Y'all, they knocked it out of the park!! Huge thanks go to Jennifer and Rob for stepping out in faith and forming Showtime Theatre Company and then allowing these girls (and so many other students and adults) the opportunity to shine! We have had the humbling, exciting, stressful-at-times privilege of watching them, over the years, grow into beautiful young ladies and budding actresses. Watch out world, cause God has BIG plans for both of these young ladies!"
"If I ever wanted to tell what Showtime Theatre Company means to me, it is NOW! Yes my child has grown in his acting and vocal ability, but it just doesn’t stop there! I walked in as he started a scene tonight and was speechless (yes me!). The confidence, boldness, and passion he has is unbelievable. It literally moved me to tears! I can not thank Jennifer and Rob and everyone who volunteers their time and talents enough for what they have instilled in my child. Dedication, hard work, teamwork, professionalism, and so much more! The friendships he has made, the relationships I have gained, the camaraderie of the whole team... I don’t know that you can find it anywhere else local! I’m so proud to call showtime my family!"
"Thank you Showtime Theatre Company for building character and kids who find empathy and kindness when it’s go time."
"Showtime isn’t just a theatre company - but also a family."
"Within 5 days my daughter went from terrified to go on stage to crying that it was over. Thanks to all the "fans" that came to cheer her on, to the support of our Showtime family, and Jen and Rob for the opportunity for her to fall in love with the theater!"
"The past couple weeks I have watched my quiet, shy little girl grow into a confident young lady :) Thank you Jennifer for the opportunity and all of the Showtime family for making us feel at home!"
"I am so proud to be part of this experience that is changing these children’s lives. Seeing them have their confidence and friendships grow is priceless! Thank you for giving our kids the gift of musical theatre! These memories will last forever!"
"This show was fabulous! I have one happy and blessed little girl. Thank you for all your hard work to create this experience for our children."
"I just wanted to say that it was a pleasure performing in The Music Man. I appreciate all your patience as you guided me through my first experience with the performing arts. You have done a great job creating a company where all are welcome."
