“After 12 fantastic years at Raenbow Productions I left with a heavy heart, but also with more confidence than I’d ever had and great friendships that will last a lifetime. Tuesday nights were my favourite time of the week and I went along to each class knowing I was coming into a safe and friendly environment where I was free to express myself. I can’t thank all the teachers enough for everything throughout my time at Raenbow!”
