SOCIAL MEDIA REVIEWS

I was moved to tears by the raw emotion that this play evoked....  It captivated the audience and touched all of us so profoundly. As a white woman I’ve never looked at myself as privileged, I’m just the same as everyone else, but when I saw this musical my heart ached for what this race has had to endure simply for the colour of their skin, and sadly these same attitudes are still alive today. This musical stirred up emotions and brought about a yearning for change and equality. We were so privileged to see it

A compelling and heart-rending reflection on racism. Dandelions in the Wind evokes the power of the human spirit among those who resisted peacefully and with dignity in the face of overwhelming hatred and bigotry. It certainly brought back memories of the Civil Rights movement in the 60s, and made me realize how far we still haven't come. Bring Kleenex

The strength of emotion that built up as the story unfolded was overwhelming. The light-hearted interludes and the music helped balance the heartbreak. Full of information that is crucial for older generations to remember and younger ones to know. Deserves major funding. It should be out there on a permanent stage - Faith Arnold

I loved the show. The message is relevant to all prejudices but was a real reminder of history even for someone who was a young adult in the 60's and 70's. Well worth coming from Winnipeg to see it -

Absolutely incredible! Loved the story-line, the message, the gamut of emotions evoked!

This was an amazing play. It touched me personally as I am a biracial woman. Racism is unfortunately still very alive today. This play was not only emotional but also educational. I'm so glad I was able to see it and would love to see it again

- Catherine Vanherzeele


Beautiful and timely play, especially with what we are seeing in the world today. The music and the message was amazing! - Nicole S


It could have been the 1960's...it could have been 2017. The lesson is as applicable then as it is now - Diane Miller


I really got a sense of the courage and determination needed to effect change in a misguided society
