“The actors were so gracious and welcoming….We heard many expressions of gratitude from the families, and several parents said that the experience had been a ‘life changing’ one for their children. Thank you so much; literally, we could not have offered an opportunity like this without you and the actors. – J.S.W., National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution
