Testimonial from National Players:
"Working with the students was terrific! Giving these young students the opportunity to have an in depth glance at a craft that they otherwise might not learn through traditional school curriculum is extremely invaluable and should happen as much as possible. And speaking personally, working with a special needs student who was blind in a Stage Combat workshop was incredible! Finding ways to make the workshop material accessible to everyone, regardless of physical capabilities, and to make it fun for them was very heart warming. The student performed a stage slap and a hair pull successfully! One of her teachers sat in briefly on the workshop and approached me afterwards, saying that seeing a student who would normally take a passive role in such a physical class actually take part and have fun almost brought tears to her eyes". -Andrew Garrett from National Players
