"Playing Thor is awesome I just love all of it, it's super funny " - Harper Scott, age 9

"I love the 'Messy Room' monologue I think my Mum does too..." - Breanna Kelly, age 15

"I really enjoyed performing the School Principal monologue - great writing and a funny and relatable scenario " - Robert Wearden, age 17

"I admire Kirsty Budding's dry humour and wit in the monologue Almost Twenty. It got lots of laughs when I performed it for a university assignment because everyone could relate to those challenges and frustrations of becoming an adult." - Cecilia Waugh, age 19

"Kirsty Budding is a name to watch." - Stage Whispers
