"Everyone is always so welcoming and friendly! It’s like walking into a second home with a second family who shares the same interests as you. I also love how the older performers mentor the younger ones. I have learned so much from their mixed age shows. "

"It's been such an amazing experience doing shows at the Misfit Artist Company. It's an honor to work with the staff, casts, and crew. This Theatre company prides itself on letting students be a part of the collaborative process, and it's been awesome! They believe in a person's individual talent and in all abilities ... and they accept & celebrate people for their differences & for who they are. With this group, I've never felt defined by my diagnosis, but instead like I could conquer the world! Thank you Misfit Artist Company for believing in me!"
