“My kids acted for me last night. Watching them made my heart so happy because their minds and hearts were soared Valentina read and reread her scripts. Alejo “would do that again!” They want more! Yay! Thank you for sharing your time and talent with our community and our kids! Fun is an empty space and imagination.” – Susi Borrero-Musi, Mode Drama Day Parent
