" A good, family-friendly Halloween production is difficult to find. A fantastic family-oriented Halloween production is next to impossible—unless you take a look at THE LITTLE WITCH OF WICHITA. Kudos to Mr. Kaufman, Ms. Brown and Ms. Sherman for creating this magical story that teaches a valuable lesson while it entertains. "
Lisa Pixler, Education Director Academy of Children’s Theatre, Richmond, WA.
" The Little Witch of Wichita has all the elements. Its catchy music, witty dialogue and important message serve up the most family friendly theater experience around! Audience members learn of how to respect the earth and its inhabitants as they clap and sing along with endearing characters. "

" What defines successful children’s theatre? When both the kids and their parents leave the theatre singing the songs, discussing the action, and praising the actors. The Little Witch of Wichita, the premiere show for the 2006/2007 Geffen Saturday Scene Series after their beautiful renovation, entertained, educated, and enlightened all who had the opportunity to see this original musical. With the backdrop of Halloween and theme of respect for everything living on the planet, this production, deftly directed and choreographed by Terry J. Barto, brought a talented and professional twelve-member ensemble to a perfect crescendo. Witty dialogue, tight story, (Beth Martin Brown), memorable music (Kevin Kaufman) and lyrics (Sandy Sherman) make The Little Witch of Wichita a must-see for all ages. "

" For two weeks audiences, young and old, had the pleasure of watching this wonderful children's musical. In addition to the lively music and choreography, there was a valuable lesson to be learned as well. Perhaps this production will be an annual event, very appropriate for Halloween. "

LITTLE WITCH is a great piece for the October time slot. It offers a twist on the Halloween theme. Its message is current and the plot offered opportunities for our theater to creatively present the play in keeping with our theatre's goals.

" We saw the Little Witch of Wichita last fall at Stages Repertory Theatre in Houston, TX. My kids (8 year old boy, 4 year old girl) just loved the play, as did I. It was an excellent production—very entertaining with a wonderful story for children. My kids have a great appreciation for musicals now!!! "

" Last night for our daughter's 11th birthday we attended the Little Lost Arts production of "The Little Witch of Wichita". As a parent I was impressed how the message was delivered without hitting the kids over the head. Our daughter, Autumn, said it was her best birthday ever! The whole family had a great time. I just wanted to let you know that the gang at Little Lost Arts did you proud and were very appreciative of your play and support. "
