Parent testimonials

  • You all go above and beyond. In particular I really appreciate the 'kiss and drop' service, it takes all the stress out of the drop off/pick up times for me.

  • Leyla attended On Stage for the first time this summer. She thoroughly loved being a part of this great program, learnt a lot, made great friends and enjoyed performing. Please pass our thanks on to your team for such a great program, we are so appreciative. We enjoyed seeing Leyla thrive during the 2 weeks of On Stage and enjoyed the performance so much, it was so smooth, professional, relevant, vibrant, thought provoking and was so wonderful to see young people expressing and enjoying themselves through dance, movement and theatre.

  • Every time my daughter participates in an On Stage workshop she comes away with so many new skills. She meets new people, has oodles of fun and always ends the week feeling really good about herself. The encouragement you all give her does her confidence the world of good. I find that this confidence flows through into Iris' school life and positively impacts on her academic results.

  • I just wanted to say huge thank you for the brilliant program you run through On Stage. It’s a highlight and a priority of the school holidays for my son. I send you a classic teenager and you return to me each day a happy, engaged, bright, energetic and enthusiastic human being that can’t stop talking, taking me through minute by minute what has happened that day.
