"The Auditorium Theatre is the place to go,
When you want to see an amazing show.
When I was little I saw "Blue's Clues" and "Bear",
Then I saw "Wicked" and "Lion King" there.
My friends were part of the "Wizard of Oz" cast,
All who watched surely had a blast.
"Lion King" was really great,
I hope to see it again at a later date.
"Wicked" is my favorite, I saw it three times,
Sorry, I can't think of any other good rhymes.
My mom helps get us tickets really cheap,
She makes sure we don't go to shows sure to put us to sleep.
Next year we'll see "Shrek" or "Billy Elliot", either one would be great,
Which one will we watch? I'll just have to wait.
So that is one of the greatest places around,
You should head over there if you're ever in town."

"Since we have participated in the Stars Of Tomorrow program our shows and approach to producing has improved."
"It was awesome to dance with the dancers in the Master Class that we watched in the show. It was fun to learn the steps that were used in the dances in the show and to scream when our dancer teacher came on stage."
"RBTL's Master Classes are always a fun filled and creative activity. The way they are set up to help you as an individual in the art of musical theatre is amazing. I have always enjoyed hearing what actors who perform as a living have to say about you as a person and the real side of Broadway. They are always a life long learning experience that will be remembered forever."
"RBTL Master Class Program is an awesome experience! The hands-on workshops have really helped me to become a better dancer, actor, and has strengthened my love for the theater.I greatly enjoyed RBTL's technical workshops that took me behind the scenes of my favorite shows like Wicked and Spamalot.Meeting all the creative actors, dancers, and stage managers that are actually from the show is inspirational."
"RBTL's Middle School Program is the joy of effective education that is student-centered and critical for all. It immerses children in the many facets of the arts and hopefully, allows us to foster an appreciation throughout our lives. Partnerships like this allow children the opportunity to explore wonderful world of arts that some would not necessarily have. Our experience with RBTL was overwhelmingly delightful, extremely enriching and to date, several students have now begun to share thinking about future goals that include lighting and sound, theatre productions, and of course, music. Thank you for your continued support."
—Laurel Avery-DeToy, Administrator, James Monroe High School, Rochester City School District
"We all hope that this terrific Middle School Program can continue, so future students will be able to learn about the world of the theatre as well. The Greater Rochester community as a whole benefits when the citizens of tomorrow are involved in the arts. We must make sure that education programs of this quality are always available."
—Timothy J. McDonnell, Enrichment Teacher, Victor Middle School, Victor, NY
"I have never been to a Broadway musical before and this being my first was so exciting that when I got home I began to sing the lyrics."
"Thank you for the opportunity to go to an amazing show through the High School Center Stage Program. I had a wonderful time."
—John Marshall High School Student
"I just have to let you know that my daughter, Emily, is having the absolute time of her life at RBTL's camp this year.She comes home everyday and talks about what they've been doing and how much they are learning. She loves the instructors and they have been giving her great compliments and encouragement. She loves hearing about Broadway from people who actually work there and can share their stories."
"It surpassed all of our expectations. My daughter was challenged in many ways during the camp, yet enjoyed every minute of it."
"What a wonderful program! The opportunity that RBTL provided for the kids in the Summer Stars program will remembered as a fun time that included valuable instruction straight from Broadway & will always benefit them as they pursue HS /community theater and beyond. I am a firm believer that the discipline offered in the Arts matures the minds of our young opens in-site to new horizons, and increases their academic abilities thus providing them a much brighter future. "Hats Off to All that were involved in the RBTL Summer Stars Camp" And thank you for all of your hard work that made this camp a huge success."
