Reactions to The Glass Slipper

Wow, well, what can I say? It was the show to blow all shows out of the water. We had 3 different grandparents there from all over the country and they all said they preferred watching this production to anything they have seen in the West End for years! What an incredible production. We were all blown away by the skill, variety, beautiful costumes and superb organisation of the cast / children and team you have built.
Thank you Zoe, it was so wonderful to be part of, we all just want to do one every year please! Zoe Marlowe

What a weekend though – just sensational… The Guards piece, in particular, would have looked right at home in the West End or Broadway. Totally fierce!! Laura Evans

What a fabulous show last night. My daughter is shy and sometimes quite unsocial. Wow I can’t believe how confident she was and absolutely amazing! Well done, I am so proud, the Glass slipper was so spectacular! From the little ones’ dancing performance, to the prince and Ella, to Mia performing with such confidence and let’s not forget the fairy godmother… The list goes on. Thank you so much. Natacha Murry

What a wonderful show! You must be so thrilled – it really was fantastic. Congratulations and thanks to you both for all your hard work and dedication. Such a strong senior/lead cast too – really enjoyable to see them perform so professionally and engagingly. Jane Matthews

I wanted to say a huge congratulations and thank you for everything you do for Centre Stage. The show was amazing. To see them all up on stage doing what they love and enjoy and what they are obviously so fantastic at is a blessing and such a joy.Helping chaperone just showed me how polite and well behaved all the children are. Not sure how many thank yous I can say but THANK YOU Cassie Williams

Thank you so much for putting on such a fabulous show at the weekend. Hattie has been coming to the Performing Arts for 3 years now and it was her first show experience. On Sunday morning, as I was getting her ready, she said “it is the best weekend of my life!” Suzy Brazier

Thank you sooo so much. Ruby has grown in confidence and personality since joining your school. She ooooozes enthusiasm for dance and acting and performing arts in general. We thought the show was very professional and proud that our daughter was part of it and more than that she feels so included and proud to be part of your school.
I cannot imagine the number of hours you have put into pulling together the show but every minute was worth it. You inspire our children and also show them what hard work and dedication can achieve, so many great values for a child whilst growing up. Thank you!! Candice Collier

Many congratulations for the show. It was a triumph. Olivia loved being a part of it. Well done to the rest of the team too. What a success. Caroline Moss

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all you hard work with the show. I and all of our family were totally blown away by the standard and professionalism of the performance from start to finish. Truly mesmerising – well done to all involved and a massive thank you to you both personally. Hannah Jackson

Just a note to say how amazing the children were today at the show. Special well done to you both for your continuous hard work. Maryam really enjoyed the last few days, coming home full of life and confident. Always looking forward to the next day. Many thanks for your fantastic effort. Fatima Usman Ahmad

Just a quick message to say how amazing the show was! I brought my parents, parents in law, other daughter and my sister to see it today and they all thought the same! I can’t stop thinking about it! They all said how professional it was and what a high standard the performers were. Genevieve and Angelica had the time of their life and it will never be forgotten. Thank you so much. Liz Levis-John

I just wanted to say that The Glass Slipper was just an absolutely AMAZING show!! Mike and I watched it both Saturday night and yesterday (Sunday) and had family and friends watching as well at all three performances and we could’ve watched it again! All of the cast were brilliant and you both (and of course your team) have done such a fantastic job. Alana has enjoyed every single minute, LOVED being The Stag and we are incredibly proud of her. She is so proud of Centre Stage and just loves being part of it and is upset that the show is over and can’t wait for the next one!!…she has been on a high all weekend. I too have really enjoyed helping out and seeing all the hard work that goes into it backstage. You are great teachers and it shows in your work, producing many talented individuals. Well done! Thank you! Sara Courage

Thank you for a magnificent show yesterday! We were captivated from start to finish and the 3 generations of the family enjoyed every minute! It was incredibly professional and smooth running. Testimony to your hard work. Quite inspirational! Tracey Wolffe

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you again for enabling Abigail to have such a wonderful opportunity to perform on stage with all her Centre Stage family. She has loved every minute of the experience and will treasure the memories for many years I’m sure.
It is the first time we have been able to see her ballet dancing. I can only say we were amazed and thrilled to see how beautifully she dances after only having lessons with you for a couple of years. Thank you so much for your constant encouragement and support. Without that I doubt Abigail would even have contemplated taking up ballet in the first place. In addition I want to say another big thank you for including a solo song for Abigail in the show and to Miss Kim who has brought out a wonderful vocal performer in our daughter. We have had so many lovely comments about her hidden talent! We are very proud parents indeed. Nikki Grindey

May I take the opportunity to congratulate you on such a truly amazing show at the weekend! We were totally blown away with the standard of performance. It was truly sensational. It was heart warming to see the sense of family in the school and witnessing everyone working together to achieve something very special and magical. I hope you are still sailing on cloud nine with that feeling of achievement and success! A total triumph and all that hard work that you both put in truly paid off. Thank you for such a lovely experience. Melia Hirst

It was truly a magnificent show and not only the ones who were watching (my husband and my mum, who travelled from Japan and has been staying for holiday) enjoyed it so much, but also Emily loved all the preparations and every minute of the entire experience.
It is so heart-warming to watch all the children who have worked so hard do their best to create such a fantastic show. And we admire the energy and hard work you both put into along with the dedication from the staff and everyone in your team. Chie Woodford

I’m guessing you’ve been absolutely inundated with communications today but I just wanted to add my own personal congratulations and thanks. The show was spectacular – it was genuinely moving, funny, dramatic and breathtaking. Every single student on that stage gave it their absolute all. I can’t even imagine how proud you must be feeling right now. I fully appreciate just how much work goes into these shows, but I really hope you feel like it was all worth it! Eve has enjoyed every second. Not just the performing but the entire experience – from learning the show work to spending time backstage with her friends and extended Centre Stage family. Thank you so much for giving her the opportunity to do what she loves most. Helping out backstage was a pleasure. We had just the loveliest bunch of kids. Please pass on my congratulations and thanks to the whole Centre Stage team. Can’t wait to hear your ideas for the next show. Not quite sure how you’re going to top The Glass Slipper, but I know you’ll find a way! Marina Tucker
