About SPROUTED!, children’s theater, and the workshop process, cast members have this to share:

"The process of SPROUTED! is highly collaborative. We are constantly building and creating from script, and our input is always valued. Nachi Lederer, our incredible director and playwright is always in the rehearsal room, giving specific direction and feedback to the cast which has been a gift! This show has everything from beautiful music to fun dancing and a grand storyline! I am so excited for audiences of all ages to experience this magical work of art that we have worked so hard to create!" - Eliana Swartz

“There's something extremely fulfilling about children's theatre. It's a real opportunity to engross children in a story and have an active impact on their lives. I remember getting completely drawn into shows I saw when I was younger, and I can't wait for this show to make that same impact!” - Nathan David Smith

"I’m so excited to share the story of SPROUTED! The process of creating the show has been so collaborative and filled with love and support among the entire cast and creative team. It has been so exciting to see how much the show has grown from the first read, and it will be even more exciting to see it continue to grow past opening night. We can’t wait to share SPROUTED! with everyone!" - Kira Gavalakis
