My husband and I came to see the production last Saturday, and we just wanted to say a very sincere congratulations to you all for a magnificant play!
The casting, acting and the stage setting were superb! We were especially amazed at the excellent performances given by the 3 young children.
We have been to many theatres in the UK as well as being active members of my own drama group there and have seen a lot of excellent plays in the UK, but last Saturdays play was one of best perfomances we have seen!
It excelled itself in every way!
Congratulations and excellent value for money!
We look forward to next seasons shows with great anticipation.

The students (and chaperones!) had a wonderful time last night--they were talking about the scenery, interpretation, and, of course, Scout all the way home!
If there is a newsletter that you folks send out, please put my email on the mailing list. Last night was clearly a worthwhile activity, and I'd like to consider it again in the future.

Sachi and I had so much fun. Both of us had tears in our eyes at the end of the play. What fine and talented actors, actresses, directors, producers, ushers and supporting staff make up the Concord Players. We feel so lucky to live in a town that appreciates and values the arts.

"Just wanted to let you know again how much I enjoyed the show. You did a great job with it conceptually so congrats, and I’m sure it will only get better during the entire run!"

We came and we had a WONDERFUL time.
The girls are from Nashoba Brooks where the 7th grade reads To Kill a Mockingbird as part of its "Challenging Times" year long curriculum (racism in the US, Japanese Interment, the McCarthy era, the Holocaust & the Salem Witch Trials). The performance was so rich for them at this great age at which they embrace issues of social justice unrestrainedly. The girls are accustomed to integrating theater into their studies - they performed in a series of Holocaust plays themselves just last month. Our visit to 51 Walden was not an official part of the curriculum, but it complimented it so well.
Best Regards, Rosa Hallowell (mom of Elizah Stein - 7th grader!)
"What an epic show. The entire process must have been daunting, and yet it all flowed so seamlessly. Well done!"

I am out visiting from San francisco and went to your performance of To Kill a Mockingbird today. I was so impressed at the quality of the production and wanted to give particular kudos to the director who pulled it all together so brillantly. It was very moving and well acted and the subject remains as relevant today as it ever was. Thank
you so much for your amazing accomplishment. I feel very privileged to
have seen it.
Sincerely. Patsy wood. Oakland california
