“We are groupies! The show was so inspirational. Everyone was mesmorized. We love you!”
"My students were absolutely mesmerized!"
“Your shows are fabulous! We have been coming for years and always enjoy ourselves.”
"Thank you so much for the opportunity for all of the children who participated in the 2014 summer camp! My son had an incredible time and walked away with such a sense of pride in himself! Thank you again for all your work and dedication to make this experience memorable for the children."
"Very professional job! Students enjoyed it very much."
Chaplain William Ohl
"You presented a beautiful program that filled the atmosphere with hope for better future and new beginnings. This is exactly what our men need to feel when they turn their lives over to our Lord and savior. Many of our Hispanic inmates enjoyed hearing music being sung in Spanish."

In our 15 year history, it has been Alabaster's experience with over 500,000 participants world-wide that Christian values expressed and experienced in music, art, drama and dance have led to higher thinking skills, creative problem solving, imagination development, confidence building, heightened self-respect and respect of others, resulting in less conflict and stronger conflict resolution when required. Alabaster’s mission is to spread the peace and healing of Jesus Christ through the inspiration of the performing arts around the globe.
