“We aim to empower children to deal with the social issues addressed in THE YARD and to cultivate a healthy respect for diversity in the younger generation.” – Shaun Parker, Artistic Director
“I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed THE YARD. It was a fantastic experience. I know my Drama class enjoyed the experience. The performers were incredibly impressive. Thanks again!” – Teacher
“THE YARD was amazing. My kids were so engrossed. They couldn’t stop talking about it and for a group of such disengaged students that’s incredible. The best bit was, they could have been my kids on stage, such a diverse group. My students really connected to them.” – Teacher
