“It was an absolute pleasure to work with the gang from Stepping Stonez. From the very beginning to the end they have always been extremely welcoming and friendly not only to me but to anyone that came through the doors of the rehearsal space.

They are a very open minded group and loved to encourage the young cast to share any ideas they had and respectfully treated them like young adults. As they are quite young themselves that enabled them to have a lot of fun with the group, making us feel more relaxed as they nurtured each individual’s talents to the best of their abilities.

When I joined the group, I was worried that I wouldn’t fit in since I was a little older than the others and even some of the organizers but thankfully I was treated the same as everybody else which I preferred. Both the cast and the Stepping Stonez gang brought so much fun, knowledge, passion, and determination to each rehearsal.

We gelled together to form a very strong team. Ever since performing with the group in ‘A lighter shade of Blue’, my confidence has grown immensely, especially while improvising, as the majority of our rehearsals and play was based on this technique.  There is so much I have to thank this group for, they not only felt like a second family to me, but helped boost my confidence and encouraged me to follow my dream.

This is a company I would definitely recommend to anyone. They are constantly working hard to be the best they can be and always have the group’s best interests at heart.”
