My kids have had the good fortune to be a part of several of the musicals. Even when they were younger and just part of the chorus, the opportunity to be a part of such a high-quality, exciting production was truly special to them and they will cherish that experience for years to come!
He organizes his support people well and keeps the kids smiling the whole time.
You helped us create this wonderful play, we’ve had with you many extraordinary days, and we hope you have a wonderful May; so thank you, we admire you.
Yay, we did it!—and it totally rocked my sox, thanx!
The camp’s lasting impact is that our children sing the songs when they are in the car, getting ready for bed, and walking to school. I’ll put on the CD when our daughter is feeling frustrated or overwhelmed, and her tears and whining turn to song. It’s that magical. THANK YOU!
My kids have been involved with numerous productions and the results (on their faces and the audiences response) is always the same—pure joy.
When I worked with him in 8th grade for Midsummer Night’s Dream he made it fun for me and everyone!
Mr. Rovainen did a great job making the musical The Boy Who Kept A Secret happen! I’m so sorry I can’t be here next year.
For me, watching the Ramayana revealed incredible talents from students who appeared to be wallflowers in their day to day activities, but once on stage were belting out beautiful music. You could see the confidence bursting in these children as they performed.
Torsti has a creative gift for storytelling, melodic invention and cohesive musical arrangements that express the heart of a subject. I am lucky to have been a musical collaborator with him, but my greater fortune was having Torsti be the musical director/creator for all three of my children for the Wellspring musicals.
I liked you.
I was amazed at how enthusiastic my child was about the new theater games he learned—he loved them and shared them with the family.
Torsti is dedicated to not only producing a fabulous performance, but to cultivating a meaningful and unforgettable experience for the entire cast.
My kids always had great fun with your musicals It was amazing how you were able to take such a large group of children with a wide range of ages and find a role that worked for everyone.
There are few things as exciting for children as being part of a singing, dancing and acting extravaganza. Torsti Rovainen has the ability to make this experience come alive for young people. He’s an able composer of kid friendly lyrics and music, and an experienced dramatic coach and director who can lead children through games and exercises to a final performance. As a teacher I was part of seeing this magical world unfold for both young children and middle schoolers alike and it was as much fun for the adults as it was for children.
Having the students experience this level of craftsmanship was extraordinary and made a lasting impression. And the kids had FUN!
