What people are saying

“Learning that I could take on a role like Hoffmann has given me enormous confidence artistically. I feel as if many hurdles in front of me have been suddenly removed, and I owe this to the confidence placed in me by the artistic directors and my colleagues at HSOW. This I will never forget.” — Jeffrey Boyd (Hoffmann, 2011)
