"The talent that the BAMtheatre kids' possess at such a young age is truly astonishing. All of them were able to take all of my feedback and apply it immediately to their pieces. I look forward to working with them in the future."
— Natalie Weiss, acclaimed vocalist and Off-Broadway Actress
"I had such a great session with the students at BAMtheatre! They were a talented, young group of performers, eager to learn, with such seemingly genuine and kind spirits. So excited to see where these kids go!"
