A small selection of letters and emails from parents and students.
“Congratulations on a wonderful show- all our family and friends thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment. Thank you to everyone for all their hard work in making it such a success – Long live Centre Stage!”

"WOW last night was amazing!!! Very proud to work at Centre Stage x"

“Just got home, it was absolutely brill and I enjoyed it (Les Miserables) as much as the West End.  The cast were so enthusiastic and the whole show just perfect. Particularly like Lucy as Eponine.  You must be so proud and rightly so”

“THAT WAS INCREDIBLE (Les Miserables).  End of story……  Let me be crystal clear.  This is my favorite show.  Ever....  I've seen it four times.... and the 25th anniversary concert.  It is a massive task to put this on badly, much less to do it well.  The weight of expectation must have been very real… O.M.G.  I was expecting good – but not this.   Some of those kids are just wonderful.  You have some outstanding talent.  I almost shed a tear on more than one occasion.  Tell Nick I am impressed.   Please highlight that I am a VERY BAD PERSON – so praise indeed… Take my children… make them stars.

"Congratulations to you all.  I loved every second of it.”

Carole, words cannot describe how much love I have for you. Thank you for the most amazing last few months.

I know she feels sad now that it is all over.  The show was extremely enjoyable and all the children were amazing. Never realised  hat children so young could have so much talent.
