My daughter recently joined Showshack at the beginning of the school year. She took part in the Greatest Showcase last weekend and she loved it.

Caroline E

It was the first Showcase my daughter has been involved in and was quite a spectacle - put the professionals to shame! She had a wonderful time and I very much enjoyed watching your slick performance. Thank you so very much.

Carolyn L

What an amazing show – we are overwhelmed by the talent!

I would like to congratulate you all on putting on four amazing shows at the weekend. I saw them all and they were all absolutely fabulous. The children were so professional and hugely talented and their enjoyment shone through in all performances. I thought the venue was excellent and together with the lighting and the fantastic images projected on the screen, all added to the atmosphere of the whole event. It is obvious that an enormous amount of work went into the shows. It is now apparent that the hard work all of the teachers put in and her efforts too, are paying off in all areas of her dancing, singing and acting. She absolutely loves going to ‘Showshack’, especially Saturdays which she spends all week looking forward to. Congratulations and thank you.

A HUGE well done to all the team for the Showcase. It totally exceeded all my expectations and was an incredible display of talent and professionalism. The standard was so high! I went to drama school many moons ago, so I understand what an enormous amount of planning, hard work and stress goes into making shows happen. All the performances were so slick and the transitions between them wonderfully smooth. What a truly outstanding show - well done everyone.

Joanna M

Many congratulations on four fantastic shows over the weekend. My daughter had a fantastic time and our family thought it was brilliant!

I wanted to say a big thank you for putting on an amazing show, I was crying throughout!! The children were brilliant and so brave.

I just wanted to say well done to all the Showshack team and all the children for such a wonderful production over the weekend. My daughter had an amazing time and really enjoyed the experience, the whole family loved the show and it was great fun helping out behind the scenes, seeing how you make it all come together. Fantastic.

Becky E

Just a quick note to say well done!! What a fantastic weekend of shows, you’ve done such an amazing job! I also just wanted to say how impressed I was back stage with all the backstage Showshack staff and teachers, everyone works so hard for the children to help pull off a fabulous show that they’ll remember being part of forever. Well done all!

Jane O

Firstly, a huge congrats to all your staff. My son has had an amazing time with the production this weekend and we were amazed at all the talent you have within your students. Fantastic show and can't wait for the next! Well done to all the amazing staff and thank you.

Carly H

Just a quick note to say thank you & congratulations on a great show. Thank you to all those involved in making the show happen. You have a fantastic team supporting you. It truly was a fantastic show. My daughter loved every minute and looked beautiful on stage.

Virginia G

I just wanted to write a note to say thank you so much to you and your amazing team for all the hard work that you put in to create such an incredible show this weekend. What an incredibly talented bunch of kids you nurture week in and week out. My son absolutely loved having the opportunity to be part of it and really got so much out of it. He was incredibly nervous in the run up to the weekend and it was testament to your team that he came onto the stage with so much confidence. I was a very proud mum!

Lucy H

Being a newby to Showshack I wasn’t sure what to expect, and just wanted to say how fantastic the show was. Some wonderfully talented children, a fantastic soundtrack, and most importantly hundreds of children who were clearly having a huge amount of fun. I have no doubt there was a huge amount of work behind the scenes so a huge thanks to all for giving our kids these opportunities. My son was enthralled throughout the show.

Charlotte B

I am writing to thank-you for your involvement at the Farnham Lights Switch On. You all delivered a fantastic performance, the effort put in by everyone was outstanding and we were delighted to include such a brilliant performance in our line-up for the event. If you could kindly pass my thanks on to the performers and everyone involved.

Councillor David Attfield, The Mayor of Farnham

I have never been a fan of musicals or musical theatre. Even as a teenager I was only interested in classical music and opera. I have always felt uneasy at the idea of parents pushing their children onto the stage, with all the pressures and fear of failure that that involves. Last weekend I had the opportunity to travel the 200 miles to see this performance, because I had two great-nieces (one of whom was the lead in this song) and one great-nephew. I was keen to see and support them, but certainly didn't expect to gain much from the evening. After no time at all however, my foot was tapping (sometimes both feet I'm sure!) and I was enthralled. The look on the performers faces was enough to dismiss any ideas other than that they are all thoroughly enjoying themselves. The boost to their self confidence must have been tremendous and their performance was jaw-dropping for me, both for their enthusiasm and talent. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening and it left me feeling "More please!" In one evening Showshack, and the kids of Showshack have utterly destroyed 70 years of blinkered prejudice. Thank you for opening a new window for me and I'm looking forward to your next production.

Trev P

I know we said it on Saturday but just to reiterate, both Paul and I were blown away by Amelie… I remember looking at Paul and he too was just like me and beaming from ear to ear, for us it was so much more than ‘hearing’ her, it was about seeing’ her confidence in herself.

Thank-you for all involved in such a beautiful transformation!

Candice H

I just wanted to say Miss Gini is amazing at captivating the audience, I’ve just left the assembly at Waverley Abbey School, the kids love her. Even though my son didn’t want to take part in the dance today as he felt he didn’t know it well enough (he prefers doing the acting singing drama part) he was beaming the whole time to be her helper today. His confidence has grown so much since starting last year.
So a massive thank-you to Gini, can’t wait for the next performance!

Yanah F

I am writing to thank-you for your fantastic performance at the Christmas Lights Switch On Event on 22 November 2014.

The effort put in by all the children is outstanding and reflected in their performances.

We really appreciated your support and I should be grateful if you could pass my thanks on to everyone involved and look forward to welcoming you back in 2015.

Councillor Jeremy Ricketts, Mayor of Farnham

Emma has enjoyed being part of Showshack, and we have really noticed her confidence improve – as seen at her school nativity this Christmas!

Jill S

Thank you!! Charlie thoroughly enjoys his lessons!

Julie B

Everyone was very impressed with how great and very professional Showshack were as apparently they had to wait a long time to perform as the acts before them were running late. Nobody complained and they just carried on and were brilliant.

Kate C

What another fantastic show, brilliant kids and the teachers too. Millie loved it! I hope you are all having a well-deserved rest!

Michele T

I just wanted to write a quick note to say congratulations on an amazing show last night.
As a Showshack ‘Newby’ I had no idea of the size or scale of the performance until I watched my daughter last night. The show was totally amazing and inspiring and the talent was phenomenal!

It must have taken so much time and effort by everyone involved to produce such a well-choreographed show for so many children – I had no idea it was so huge! Thanks everyone for an entertaining evening for us but also for giving my daughter such a great experience.

My daughter also really enjoyed the whole experience and is eager to get much more involved in other areas of Showshack such as singing etc and this is all as a result of her seeing some amazing performances which have inspired her.

Claire B

Just a quick note to say how fantastic I thought last weekend was. Evie was bowled over by the whole thing if not a little tired!

Nina M

Well done to everyone and a big thank-you for another wonderful Showshack performance. Maddy really enjoyed it and we loved seeing her on Sunday… Today she proudly took in her photos and programme to show her headmistress.

Sarah F

Thank-you to all the teachers and helpers for the effort putting on a show for the children to have such a great experience.

Everyone has said how amazing and professional the show was and we are a little bit sad it is all over!

Sue H

I would just like to say on behalf of myself and my family, how amazing the show was! It was such a fantastic performance and I was a very proud mum!

Thank you so much to everyone involved, please ensure this is passed on to all your brilliant, dedicated and very patient staff and volunteers. You have all given our children the most wonderful opportunity to be a part of something amazing and I’m sure they will never forget it. I have certainly seen such a change in my son’s self-esteem and confidence since he joined Showshack 3 years ago. The show was something he felt very passionate about and he absolutely loved it.

Once again, many thanks for all your hard work and dedication for such a wonderful event.

Jacqui P

Congratulations on producing an amazing show!

Helen S

Thank you for an amazing show last night; we thoroughly enjoyed every minute…
… Thanks again for an incredible show.

Daisy R

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for such an entertaining show.

The variety was perfect and made it a real showcase for the work you do.

My family travelled 2 hours to come and see it and were very impressed.

Well done for all the hard work and making it a very memorable evening.

Joanna T

Thank-you for putting on such an amazing show – wow!!

Nicola C

Thank you and your lovely team very much for the great show, it exceeded all expectations, and it was of course wonderful to see my little daughter Minnie enjoy herself so much on stage and boost her confidence so much… You should be very proud of this epic show!

Emanuela D

Thank you for a great opportunity. It [Showtime 2015] was very well organised front and back stage and all the children seemed to enjoy it.

Sarah S

It was a fantastic show… Fantastic effort by all your team to put on such a great show, thank-you for all your hard work and effort in helping the children gain so much from this, it’s much appreciated.

Neil H

You should all be incredibly proud! This was the first performance we have seen from Showshack and were amazed by the professional quality! Well done.

Alice A

Please pass on our appreciation to all the staff that helped with the show – it was fabulous and we felt Francesca benefited hugely from the opportunity to perform on such a big stage. As to do a solo – I don’t know who was more nervous but it paid off and has hugely built up her confidence. Thank you.

Mark C

It was an amazing show – congratulations and well done!


Thank-you! Although Grace only started at Showshack this term she loved every minute of the show. You did an amazing job getting so many children to perform. The older children really inspired her. She wants to start ballet again and take up tap!! Well done.

Lisa R

Thank-you all so much for the wonderful experience you gave Poppy on Saturday. This is her 3rd Showtime now and she was just as proud to take part in this one as the last 2. We have seen her change from a very shy little 6 year old and to see her loving every second of the performance and performing with confidence means the world. I feel in years to come she will look back on her memories of childhood and Showshack will form such a major part. It has also helped shape her future in so many ways.

Carolyn S

I just wanted to say an enormous congratulations to you all on the show. We thought it was fantastic and could see how much hard work was put in by so many people so a big thank you too. Dave and I thought Ella looked great on stage, beaming with confidence, big smiley face and was really enjoying it.
