Dreams Come True
We always go over to the Opera House for their wonderful productions! It's one of my favorite places to go to. I feel like the Opera House is the most important structure in Rochester. Everyone always works so hard! They put on the best shows. Dreams come true there. People from all over come to perform or watch. I love the Opera House.
 ~ Karen, Grade 8


Educational & Exciting!
I can't thank you enough for all your help with today's show [We The People]. So many of the
parents/teachers told me how much they loved the show! I called the company [Theatreworks USA] to see if they could get us a CD or DVD of the show. I love when an education show like this really excites our children for the love of learning! I look forward to seeing you again for future shows. Thank you again.
 ~ Sincerely, Carol Petrusewicz

 

BRAVO!
This morning was another brilliant performance in the A&E Series..."A Christmas Carol." Thank you so very much!
