"I'm incredibly proud of Sage Studio's ability to find new and creative ways to connect with our students," said Amanda Flahive, Sage Studio Program Manager. "We're excited for our students to celebrate the holidays with us virtually! Our broadcast offers a great opportunity for families to connect with friends and relatives across the country. We also hope to raise some much-needed funds to keep the arts alive in McHenry county, especially for the children. We're excited to have them all together for this one magical night - we sure need a little Christmas now!"
Sage Studio mom Tessa Burke offers a similar sentiment. "I'm so grateful to Sage Studio for finding a creative and safe way for my son Liam to continue to pursue theatre at a time when in-person activities aren't possible," she said. "He loves collaborating with his peers, and I'm happy he has a virtual space where he can continue developing his talents. Well done!"
