Students in Hanna Theatre

“The discussions we had on the bus, at lunch, and in class were some of the most insightful conversations I have seen from my students this year. Every single student who attended the performance was glad to have gone, and we had lively debates about the character depictions on stage.”
– Diane Mealey, Wooster High School

“I am thankful to the actors and tech crew that stayed to speak with the students and thought the Q&A was very interesting, helping to make the experience even more personal for the students. It is just such a fabulous production, one of the best I have seen, and I am so thankful that my students were able to attend.”
- Susan Obergefell, St. Mary of the Assumption School
