Jessica and Jordan are dedicated to teaching and sharing their talents with their students. I am forever grateful for the opportunities they have given my son.
This is a great group of young adults We especially loved "Olive" but everyone was great We had seen this play before where adults played the kids but this was kids playing kids and it is a refreshing to see such talent in the youth; all were very polite when we spoke to them in the lobby after the play> We look forward to seeing their next production.
Hilarious show with non-stop laughter! Highly recommend!
Really cute show! Lots of great talent!
high energy hilarity. We left laughing...
Fun show with a great cast. I’m glad I went!
Jessica and Jordan have helped me so much as an actor and a singer and just a person in general I highly recommend them.
Excellent program, run by true professionals! My son continues to gain knowledge about the industry, and has grown leaps and bounds since studying with TYP! He is now gaining leadership skills as well! So grateful!
