FEEDBACK FROM OUR TRIPLE THREATS WORKSHOPS
“Triple Threats helps to extend a hand to aspiring Musical Theatre rising artists who is in need for experience and improvement in their skills. Through this workshop, we get to know more people and make new friends, work with them and also learn more about ourselves as a performer. We are also exposed to working with the director and crew and being face to face with how the “working world” is going to be like. It is real and truly fun! Plus we get to not just prepare and rehearse, we also get to perform and showcase our experiences and talents!”
- Shirley Tan, Class of 2017
“Thanks for a great job in shaping young talents! What we saw today tells me that we have great teachers and committed individuals with passion in Singapore! We would not have known that Miguel could do this if not for enrolling him in this. Kudos! As parents we are really glad to see that if we give our kids such opportunities, they can excel!”
- Sam Vedanaigam, father of Miguel Vedanaigam, Class of 2014
“It’s not at all about starting as a picture perfect performer. I think its a journey of both learning and gaining knowledge on what you already have, and internalizing the pointers you get from the experienced people there to enable yourself to grow as a performer as well as a person. The environment there and the people especially, really helped motivate myself to keep moving forward and go with the dream.”
