Make friends, not drama!

The three-week format worked extremely well. It allowed us time to focus more on the process of developing skills and having fun, and left us plenty of time to polish our productions.

We are incredibly proud of all our students. Their teamwork and dedication are just part of why we TGS teachers LOVE OUR JOBS!
