As a parent, I used to enjoy Mr H's theater & Summerstock productions despite the favoritism others mentioned. My critique is the repetition of theatrical productions over the years. I am very tired of Beauty & the Beast, Joseph, Hairspray, Annie and Seussical. There was Grease, Tarzan and HS Musical awhile ago, but for the most part, Mr H does the same shows over & over & over again. PLEASE choose something else sometime soon! I'll buy tickets again, but not for these same shows so frequently.

He takes all of his life stressors out on his students. If you are obnoxiously outgoing and crave attention, congrats, you'll be one of his few favorites. Once you are considered a favorite, he will give you anything you want. If not, you're screwed. He doesn't pay attention to talent and only considers his favorites. The musical program is great because of Mr. York- not him. Also, he gets way too involved/starts drama. Don't give in and tell him secrets.

Great Teacher. Stay on his good side. Rarely assigns worksheets, but when he does make sure you do it on time. Otherwise good luck you're on your own.

Usually a fun guy, but watch out if you get on his bad side - which is easy to do if you're not one of his "favorites."
