Theatre Is Easy
...it is a safe guess that this show is the first introduction to the world of theatre for many of [its] attendees, and what a good choice it is.
[The songs] are winsome, just right for the piece, bright and tight, not trite, spritely and cheery. Vocabulary is on plane with children’s ability to understand, without being overly cutesy, condescending, or syrupy. And the melodies are invigorating and accessible.

...when kids are literally standing on their seats to get a better view, you know your children’s show is a success.
"As a director and choreographer being able to collaborate made things so much easier and less stressful. Due dates were met, and often times I had the info earlier than promised. The kids loved that each song was a different genre of music and came to rehearsal excited to find out what kind of music their characters got assigned. They loved the modern twist on familiar characters! Since the tracks are all fully orchestrated I didn’t have the stress of hiring an orchestra and the kids had consistent rehearsal tracks. Can’t wait to work with WhatFun again!"
Show Director, New Hope Care Center
"The WhatFun! Team are collaborative, creative, prepared, organized and passionate. Working with them at Davenport Junior Theatre has been beyond our expectations. Bobby’s musical arrangements and compositions, and Ashley’s creative direction and inspired storytelling, helped make the show a success. They continued to lead and guide our student team from the first rehearsal to the closing day. You can count on this duo to be reliable, inspired, and… well, if someone asked how your experience was, I just might say, 'WhatFun!'”

"[Campout! is] a quick, easy to follow story...and the characters were fun for the kids!"
"We still have kids singing 'Campout... Ooo ooo ooo oo' as we hear them walk by!"
"Again, we are SO HAPPY we were able to do this [Campout!] and we play [the song] Teamwork every time we clean the theatre. My staff had fun and the kids loved it and it was a great addition to our camp program this summer."
