"The audience joined in, singing the sequence of the water cycle. After the program, positive comments from parents exclaimed that this will give the kids a jump start on science in the upcoming school year."
Lynn Raymond, Cuyahoga County Public Library
This was great! I really enjoy these professional development workshops and this one had cool ideas I can take and use in the classroom tomorrow! The speaker was very organized, executed her objectives well, and provided useful techniques. Fun time!

It was very interesting to learn about all the different kinds of acting skills.

You all did an amazing job this summer. The performance showed real and substantive accomplishment by the children – a testament to your team’s work. Congratulations and THANK YOU!

Thanks! We need more PD like this in order to motivate our students to actively participate and learn concepts in various ways. Bring Robin back!

"The kids were jumping out of their seats to participate in the show. The parents were pleased that, by the time the kids had the mystery solved and the show was over, they learned about the water cycle, including precipitation, collection, and evaporation."
Laurel Blatnik, Chagrin Public Library
THE LAST FUGITIVE SLAVE performance showed the emotional distress and physical consequences of the slavery institution; Robin incorporated students into her performance, directly having them see the importance of the teaching of history and culture by means of the theatrical arts.
"You are so talented. I think it really hits home and gets the point against bullying across…with the Greek masks on each character pleading their case/cause. I love the interaction with the audience.”
Lisa Pawluk, Longfellow MIddle School
I especially enjoyed how the whole class got to create!
Matt, a student
The performance was superb. The children were engrossed from start to finish. They wanted more!

I believe the show clearly demonstrates that the "Founding Fathers" based many portions of the Constitution on their knowledge of Iroquois government, rather than on the Magna Carta, as textbooks often claim.
