Our Experience

This was our very first time experiencing a performance by Sierra School of Performing Arts, and it turned out to be an incredibly enjoyable experience. We weren’t quite sure what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised by the remarkable talent and skills of each and every cast member.

Even though this show is rated PG-13 and isn’t specifically designed for kids, my children had an absolute blast. While there were some parts meant for grown-ups, most of those aspects flew right over their heads. They were captivated by the singing and all the different characters in the performance.

Interestingly, even my husband, who usually isn’t a huge fan of musicals, also had a great time with the show. The storyline was engaging, and there were some fantastic moments of humor woven in.

Back when I lived on the East coast, I used to frequently attend Broadway shows, and this particular performance brought back those cherished memories. I truly appreciated the acting, singing, and the overall story!

Our admiration for Sierra School of Performing Arts, has definitely grown, and we’re eagerly looking forward to attending future productions!
