|"I've been going to Summer on Stage for eight years now, and it's been an incredibly enjoyable experience to see the transformation in myself...it's an experience I can't get anywhere else. This year was fun, exciting, and challenging. It's an extraordinary experience when you feel so incredibly in character on stage that everything else seems to vanish. Thank you."
- Helena Fisher-Welsh, Cleveland HS
