IT’S OUR BIRTHDAY!

Today is a very special day for us because it is our 4th anniversary! 70K+ hits, 200+ kids, and 50+ shows later, I am so excited to say we have now been online for four years. It’s been a labor of love for me, running it completely on my own, but I’m so incredibly thankful for the amount of support this blog has received from those in the Broadway community and beyond. I still get so giddy when I get messages from those within the theatre community. It’s been so incredibly fun to see how much these kids grow and to see where their careers take them. Seeing alumni in things like “The X Factor”, “The Grand Budapest Hotel”, and the upcoming “Into the Woods” (and many more!) is so exciting for me. I want to thank all of you for sticking with this website for four years despite it not being as updated as it should most of the time be due to my insane school/work schedule. Here’s to many more years to come!
