The group of high schoolers and middle schoolers do a better job with this show (Once Upon a Mattress in Concert) than I’m sure a group of trained adults could have.

Directors Kristofer Sanz, Rolando Sanz, and Paul Heinemann have created an extraordinary environment for mentorship and individualized instruction for these committed and gifted young people.

‘You always expect the best performing arts to be in New York, but (YAA) brings it to the DMV...From (YAA), I got the professional aspect of (professional acting) … the mindset. From there, I was like, ‘maybe I can do this sooner than I thought’.
— Mateo Ferro, YAA Student in an interview on WTOP (about getting cast in Kennedy Center's IN THE HEIGHTS)
I saw performances in this show that rivaled some of the professional theatre that I have experienced.
