Great content--take the kids!

I really enjoyed the performance, the nearly all-female cast, and content of this show. I was pleased to see the “A” highlighted well in the story as, in recent years, an extreme focus on STEM in education has all but removed the critical role of Art in helping fuel other disciplines (at least in schools that lack the funding for special arts facilities and programs.) To partially echo (and perhaps expound on) what other reviewers have said, I would love to see where this could go post-Fringe in terms of in presentation to students. With an eye to such purpose and curriculum alignment (or appeal to groups such as scouts), I could see this show tightened up and used as a way to stimulate conversation and inspire kids. As to this production, yes, there are a lot of transitions, and the acting is a little uneven in some places, but this is Fringe—I fully expect some rough edges in any “premiering” show. The important take away is, this is a show with an excellent theme, relatable dialogue, engaging characters, and a creative, flexible presentation. Well done.
You go, girl!

interesting setup for this entertaining, informative and inspiring show. Some needless scene changes and clunky placards, but terrific performances. It deserves to be seen by students and adults alike. STEAM powers the future!

I really enjoyed this production! Fascinating historical stories about women in science in an entertaining premise.
Would love to see a full length version, and would be great to be featured in a school setting.
Acting was excellent, and although there were a lot of scene changes, I truly enjoyed this production.
I highly recommend this if you are looking for a well thought out and complete story.
Great for audiences of all ages!
Great! Not perfect, but great!

I REALLY liked the concept of this show. It's really fun to watch the protagonist going through her journey and you get to meet a lot of great people in history! I'd love to see this fleshed out into a longer show (to develop some characters a little more, especially the antagonist). This would be great for schools to perform!
Fun and educational kids show

"Carly Reynolds and the S.T.E.A.M. Team" is a fun and educational kids show! Carly Reynolds (played by Lillie Horton) is a relatable protagonist who receives guidance and inspiration from influential (and fierce!) female scientists. The cast is excellent. There are a ome rough edges with things like clunky scene changes, but overall I liked it! I would recommend this to folks bringing young people to the Fringe and anyone who is interested in educational theater.
