"Take the Stage is inspirational. It's a television program created with a magnificent vision. As an educator, and specifically a theatre teacher for 27 years at the celebrated High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Houston, I say confidently that there is great need to launch such a show."

"As our schools too infrequently support the performing arts, though there are notable exceptions, I am very gratified one of our long-time teachers at Main Street Theater's Kids on Stage plans to bring the performing arts to kids through youth-oriented TV programming."

"At HoustonPBS, we are always looking for a way to continue arts education for our younger audience and to help build in them a true appreciation for the world of the visual and performing arts. Take the Stage has the ability to help create a wondrous TV environment, that puts the spotlight on the performing arts in a way that will reach all children, encourage aspiring performers and surely plant the seeds to cultivate a love for and as time passes, a continuing support of the rich world of the performing arts."
