"The first time I saw you perform was truly incredible.  I remember seeing you and remembering what I loved about acting.  How it makes people feel.  You have a talent that is indescribable, you take an audience and with ease allow them to feel the entire range of emotions that with a complex character.  Even with this talent you remain humble, honest, and kind backstage.  You are empathetic and inspiring and still mange to crack jokes and keep the entire cast entertained.  You are one of the actors that made me want to act and I cannot wait to see you perform more and change lives at the same time." - Maya Gardner

"I am floored and so grateful for your focus, dedication and amazing attitude throughout this process. The vivid clarity you brought to this character was absolutely stunning.

It has turned out to be a crowning achievement for us all!" - Jaye Austin Williams, Director
