Testimonials

“I am still grinning from ear to ear from the performance today. It was the perfect culmination of hard work and love that Chris put into the entire week for all of our children. I cannot thank your team enough for giving Tessa this experience. As you know, this age is critical for how a person will develop confidence and individuality later in life. What I saw today was a group of children who trusted their teacher, respected one another, and found immeasurable joy in sharing who they are as individuals. So, THANK YOU! This mom is so grateful.”

Elizabeth List

“​Just a quick note to thank you and Kathy and all of the people at Big Star Studios. Ally is getting more out of this than we ever thought possible. She looks forward to performing in front of large groups. Her work in the Annie performance was amazing for a then 6-year-old. We love everything she’s done since as well and look forward to her and Ryan (who is loving his start at Big Star) performing in Willy Wonka in March.”

Robert Holmgren

“I just wanted to take a minute to let you know what an amazing experience we have had a Big Star. Our son Zach has absolutely blossomed being a part of your Musical Theater Class. Before taking classes at Big Star, Zach was very shy and lacked self confidence. We find it absolutely amazing what Kathy has been able to get Zach to do on stage. Sing, dance and monologues, he is in his element on stage. Sports were never Zach’s ‘thing’, but with Big Star, he finally feels like he is a part of something special. He would be there every day if he could!”

“With praise and gratitude for Big Star Studios, we put our highest recommendation on Little Stars Preschool. Coming from a family of educators, with three kids who have been benefited from the programs at Big Star, our hearts are always filled with joy seeing our kids smiling ear-to-ear at drop off and pick up. We love how Big Star puts an emphasis on creative learning, learning by doing and discovery, and really plays off students’ individual interests and desires which makes learning fun, interesting, and desirable. In addition to the learning and creative atmosphere that we love , the staff at Big Star are always so willing to work with individual family’s needs and schedules and have made the preschool experience for our family such a positive one. We are grateful for everyone at Big Star Studios and our kids LOVE the preschool and programs they offer.”
