"...one of the most wonderful performance opportunities I have had...Mario and Lucinda are professional, supportive and an absolute pleasure to work with.”
"I loved the whole process! I met over 20 new people, and though rehearsals were professional and productive, had plenty of time to build some new friendships! The Morins are talented, fun, focused, and easy to work for. It was a joy to kick off the season with the cast and crew!"
"Dancing in (the show) was one of the most rewarding experiences of my 2018 year. The remarkable talent of the cast and the incredible leadership of the Morins made it such a fun three months. This show gives everyone, within the cast or audience, the best feeling of hope in all the craziness of Christmas time."
"The whole Christmas Show cast was incredibly loving and nice. I had so much fun working with them, and I hope to be a part of this every year from now on."
