WHAT THE PRESS IS SAYING

-Linda Novak, Audience Member
“The Brooklyn STEP from Canarsie High School had the pleasure of attending “Let’s Talk About IT!” Students and staff found the play to be enjoyable and interesting, coupling the theme of relationships with the notion of succumbing to peer pressure. Many of the students were able to empathize with the plays messages relating their own experiences. Students and staff found the choreography to be very intriguing and satisfying. Additionally, the staff was impressed by the video, which was run in conjunction with the live performance. This was a wonderful experience for all involved and we look forward to additional performances by Treehouse Shakers. Rating A for awesome.”
