Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Fun and touching

I stumbled across this and am really enjoying the show. My tween kids enjoyed it too. There's something endearing and heartwarming about seeing these former theatre kids reunite. Some of the productions are quite impressive ("Oklahoma" and "Godspell" stand out of the ones I've seen.) I'm glad they didn't do the Olympic schtick of giving us too much sad backstory. The viewer gets just enough of a glimpse into the performers' lives and "journeys."

The best reality show out there

If you are a fan of reality shows this is just a show for you it is a show where high School plays get a comeback it follows a group of adults that put on a play in high school and must reunite when they are adults the premise is awesome I have never seen a show like it although Kristen Bell barely ever shows up in their own show it's still good and the adult comedy the only adults can get makes me laugh
