What Audiences are Saying about This is Sadie

Why You Should Take Preschoolers to the Theater!

After [This is Sadie], creating theatre became the girls’ favorite form of play. The plays alone are not the thing; it’s also about scribbling the tickets and passing them out, and rigging a curtain out of a bedsheet and a lighting system from a flashlight. Oh, and they never fail to make a stern preshow announcement: “Turn off your cellphones!”

This is Sadie unlocks kids’ imaginations, reinforces the beauty of friendship and celebrates the power of creativity and curiosity. It’s the perfect show to introduce your little ones to live theater.

My Boys Were Enchanted

My boys, 4 and 6 years old, both were enchanted. My youngest especially, identified with the idea of having a beloved stuffed animal come to life as a companion. I watched my older son, his eyes opened wide in wonder, giggle and sit on the edge of his seat the entire time. The activities beforehand were also excellent and age appropriate.

My Son was Mesmerized!

This is Sadie is absolutely wonderful! We went to the show for my son’s 4th birthday – he loved it and was mesmerized by the incredible dancing and beautiful, imaginative costumes and set. His favorite character was the octopus! The art activities before the show and the picture opportunity with the cast afterwards made the whole experience feel extra special. The cast even sang happy birthday to my son during the photo op! Couldn’t have been a better experience.
