" Well done RCT!  That Broadway Bootcamp show was impressive!  AND my 8 year old enjoyed the camp (which is was not sure he would).

   Full success :)"      Thank you, Fannie Davis

"....Production of The Little Mermaid at RCT School of Musical Theatre here in Richardson...they truly do good work. The kids were from 8-18. Now, we've all sat through school plays............. Not with this group. No flubbed lines.  No mistakes. Pretty darn impressive. Folks in this neck of the woods, please check them out and support them. They do professional plays too, not just kids shows"......  - Ivan Shepperd

"This awesome theater school is wonderful. Our daughter attended a number of other groups in the area but none that provided such a well-rounded, fun, fulfilling and welcoming theater home like RCT. Once we found RCT we didn't look back. 7 years later we have seen her grow in so many ways - confidence, talent, strength, enjoyment and friendship and all through the terrific tutoring and support at RCT. Highly HIGHLY recommend the school, and the theater, to all."~Robin Markussen (Director of Health, Safety, Environment at RPS Group)

"RCT’s school gives kids the opportunity to test the edges of their potential. They are challenged and stretched in an environment that is consistently affirming and encouraging. Laura really loves these kids and it shows. They work hard; they take responsibility, and perhaps most notably, they have learned the value of building each other up. The result is fantastic shows and a truly amazing group of kids who believe in themselves. I am grateful beyond words for the ways my girls have been shaped by RCT! What a gift!"~  Lisa Greenwood (VP Leadership Ministry at Texas Methodist Foundation).

"This is the theatre my daughter, Lexie,  works with in the summer, and they are AMAZING! They put on wonderful shows for kids and major productions with an adult company. The directors are what I call "good people" so your kids would be in great hands! If you need a fun and safe activity or camp for spring break or summer check them out."~ Cheryl Bradley

One of your camp alumni just graduated from Boston Conservatory with a BFA in Musical Theater Performance. Thanks for giving Katie her big start!   Cheers!    Becky O’Rourke
