Gabe’s first experience with actOUT! has been an absolutely positively amazing one! He has found his passion and in his own words, “I have finally found somewhere where I feel I really fit in.” Those words struck a cord in my heart and I owe it all to the wonderful people and cast members at actOUT! Thank you.

It’s funny how the experience of becoming someone else on stage has allowed my children to discover who they really are at the core. They have each emerged from this experience with a renewed sense and greater courage to share their unique selves with the world!
