TESTIMONIALS

PARENTS

“A Standing Ovation For Sol Children's Theatre"! Having known this theatre since its inception, I am proud to say that Sol Children's Theatre is the best thing to have happened to my child, and to me. It embodies and practices every ideal a theatre of any sort should live up to: it is innovative, creative, and expressive.

One of the most amazing things about this theatre is its absolute refusal to be a stereotype of a children's theatre, to be slotted into a comfortable definition. With every production, this theatre reinvents itself. While the plays are primarily by and for children, it strives to make each play appeal to every person in the audience, irrespective of age or any other designation.

Another endearing quality of SCTT is the pride it takes in everything they present. Each play reflects the care of detail and disciplined hard work that has gone into it on part of everyone who is intimately and tangentially involved in the making. Each play, even each performance, is like none other, inimitable, a piece of art in its own right. I try my best to watch more than one performance of every play they produce.

By far the most admirable feature about this theatre is its range. For instance, it can, very effectively, tap into the endearing, innocent sweetness of "Sleeping Beauty," and in the very next play, boldly push the boundaries of the classic gothic horror of "Dracula" with equal grace. I see that the theatre plans to tackle Shakespeare in the near future, and have no doubts that they shall do fair justice to the complexity and richness that the Bard's work demands of its practioners, with aplomb. Words fail me. There are not enough commendations I can express for this extraordinary theatre I am fortunate to know. Being associated with this unafraid enterprise that expresses the human experience, has made me proud of being human. I invite all who know it to join me in applause for the Sol Children's Theatre as it continues to truly execute its mission with every breath it takes, both on stage and off stage.”

--Shefali Choksi

“My daughter has performed with a few of the other local theaters over the past couple of years. However, it wasn't till she found Sol that she blossomed into a true young actor. At Sol, she has taken acting classes, private voice lessons, as well as performed in a handful of their shows. Sol has everything a young actor needs to learn the profession. It is truly one-stop shopping. As a parent, the moment I walked into the theatre and met Rosalie, I was hooked. She cares about these kids, wants to see them evolve and succeed into not only fine actors, but more importantly, wonderful human beings. She takes no bologna from them and in return she has a theatre troupe of the most outstanding and well behaved children I have ever met! There are no stars here, only good friends.”

-- Trish Sylvester

“Sol Children is a great place for my son. He has found in this theater a wonderful group of children and teachers. It is a safe, fun and full of energy place. My son can't wait to go to rehearsals or troupe meetings. He calls Sol Children Theater "his second home". I'm so glad we found this outstanding children's theater!

-- Maria Laing

“Our daughter has been performing in local theater and in professional productions for 6 years. She has also been with Sol since it opened in Boca Raton. We have found Sol Children’s Theatre Troupe not only provides her a performance venue but the teachers and directors there push her to improve her skills. In particular, the staff stresses vocal training for musical theater, classical singing and standards with great results. It is also a happy, safe place for children."

-- Jim Novakoff

“We have been apart of Sol Children's Theatre since their beginning. My daughter Lexy Gaeta has done many shows at Sol. We are part of the Sol family. It is a safe place for children, it is their safe place and they'll love being part of it. From Rosalie to her staff and the kid's involved it is a top notch theatre .Their productions are wonderful and the children have great talent. I can promise you, you won't be sorry, you'll only wish you had done it earlier!”

-- Reesa Gaeta

“Our daughter Tanya is passionate about her involvement in Sol Children's Theatre. She loves the classes, plays, and participation in troupe activities ranging from crew to cast member. It is her favoritie extracurricular commitment.”

-- Carol Sashi

SCTT has truly become my home away from home. The directors and employees are dedicated and continue to go up and beyond the call of duty, and the children and teenagers in the shows are not only unbelievable actors but now unbelievable friends. I am eternally grateful for everyone involved. I have learned so much, and yet have so much more to learn, and I can't wait.

-- Taylor Fox

"Sol Children Theatre isn't just a theatre where a bunch of kids go to to read lines, we truly learn the art of not "acting" but "being". We step into our character's shoes and put on a remarkable performance. Sol Children Theatre is a place where we can be ourselves; here, we aren't afraid to take risks and try new things. Being part of this amazing place has not only taught me about acting, but about myself. We learn so much and we have a BLAST doing it! I'm so glad to be a part of Sol Children Theatre Troope."

-- Katie

AUDIENCE … DRACULA

"I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed Dracula last night. I thought the kids did an absolutely wonderful job. What a talented bunch of kids! I loved the humor in it too. The acting was just great, and their energy was contagious. I could tell that they really enjoy acting. Again thanks. It was great!"

"I can't say it enough, but this is THE BEST CHILDREN'S SHOW I HAVE EVER SEEN!! Everything is so wonderfully perfect from the costumes to the lighting to the music. And the actors...from Dracula to the servant girl and everyone in between...each and everyone of them is a shining star. Kudos to your cast and crew. I get chills just thinking about it. Congratulations on a job superbly done and I will most definatley spread the word!!"

AUDIENCE … CHRISTMAS CAROL

"Congratulations to everyone who helped put together the wonderful production of Christmas Carol last night! I was really blown away by how this cast came together and thoroughly entertained us! To say I was impressed by this group of actors is an understatement!!!!"

"I've only been to Dracula previously. Christmas Carol, absolutely outstanding! The young cast was amazing! I can't believe they can carry such talent! The lighting and effects just keep getting better and better"

Sol Children Theatre REVIEW

Saturday, April 25, 2009
Young Artists Concert Series

Sol Children Theatre has done it again! The six young vocalists entertained last night's audience with music from contemporary to show tunes. Patrons were served up a mix of solos, trios, and sextets. First-time visitors to the theatre were heard to say "Splendid" and "That was awesome" while Sol veterans agreed "That was the best one yet". Producer/Director Rosalie Grant raised the bar for her performers and the cast of teenagers had no problem meeting the challenge. The evening ended with the audince showing their appreciation with a standing ovation.

If you've not yet been to this little slice of heaven on Federal Highway, you're really missing out on something special. Sol Children Theatre, Boca Raton's only not-for-profit children's theatre, produces plays and concerts that are terrific, family-friendly events. Thank you, Ronald B. in Boca Raton
