Students' letters show the impact of A THOUSAND CRANES

Tuesday | Feb. 28, 2017

From time to time we receive thank you letters from schools where our Imaginary Theatre Company has visited. We wanted to share a few with you today.

The quotes below are from the students at Wilson School who attended our presentation of A Thousand Cranes, a show that looks at the impact of the atomic bombing of Japan through a child's eyes. It’s inspiring to see what a huge impact we are having on their lives!

“From this presentation, I really know how much peace really means.  From now on, I am going to be as kind and peaceful as I can.  This play really touched my heart.” – Austin

“I will go see Sadako’s paper crane in the museum someday.  I hope that someday, Sadako’s wish will come true. No more atom bombs will ever fall again.”  - Alana

“I will always think of Sadako in bad times. Sadako is so strong even though she had leukemia.  She is an amazing character that will always inspire me!” – Sahar

“Thank you for bringing the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis to us.  Their plays are always amazing, but this was the best so far.  I think it is good to spread awareness about the atomic bomb.  People need to know about what happened to the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki so that we don’t do it again.” – Sofia

“I loved how well they performed something that happened again so realistically. I have learned so much because of these plays….If there’s one important message of this play, it’s keep hoping, and I think that’s a very important message.” - Brielle
