Our Approach

"Wow! It was amazing! Kol HaKavod!  Not only did you succeed in getting all of these children to participate with joy, but they learned their lines and sang their songs and did it all with more polish than I have ever seen in such young children.  And the technology was extraordinary. Can you tell that I was impressed?"

  • Dr. Paul Schneider, educator

Children involved in our productions gain confidence, have a sense of belonging, and learn important values such as working toward a goal and feeling pride for what they have accomplished. 

 

Naomi works to make every child feel connected, engaged, and proud of their work.  Each child gets a role and is highlighted in the production. 

Our custom lyrics for special occasions enhance each celebration and bring joy to family and friends. 

Curtain Up Creative brings unforgettable and cherished memories to children and families.
