Reviews from students on Cabaret Paree's programs:
Lincoln High School, Manitowoc, Wisconsin, student Ali Bendix: "What a spectacular job Ms. Hommel did when she visited our school. Granted, our facilities are not as nice as some of the larger locations where she has performed, but she worked with what she had, leaving many of the students, including myself, amazed. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit us. You are an inspiration and wonderful asset to the performing and education industry! Merci beaucoup!"
"A stellar performance! ... thank you for taking me to Paris along with you...I found your show to be most amazing and interesting, and I think that other high schools would enjoy your show just as much as I did. Do you ever think about touring the United States with your program?" James Sherwood, Robinson High School, Robinson, Illinois
From 5th grader Bronwyn Loughlin
"I thought the presentation was excellent!" said Jeff Crawford of Colfax High School in California, "She could be comical and serious at the same time. The funniest part was where she played the role of a French hooker. She made my brother's face turn beat red! Overall, I hope that she comes back in the years to come. I admire her, and think of her as an inspiration for me to work on my French. C'est Bien C'est Bien."
Chase Dowling also of Colfax High School in California wrote, "I liked the show and how she came around and mingled around the crowd, and how she made it seem real." From Annie Brooks, "I thought it was so awesome how you changed the scene, you made me feel like I was in Paris myself. I now plan to go see another performance sometime. Good job." From Sarah Crook-Perry, "I also liked the atmosphere of the cabaret. I loved the singing and the piano. It makes me happy that they chose our school to come to!"
From Colfax High, California: Jason Hoffmann "Your performance left a significant impression on other kids and especially myself. My musical nature made me even more attracted to the singing and dancing which I was so honored to see. As a performer in choir I can admire and respect your excellent range, your voice as well as your incredible way of drawing your audience into the act. Your accompanist inspired me to put more into my efforts as a pianist and do greater things. I really enjoyed your storytelling before you flew into your songs. I also would like to thank your pianist for his great Jazz rendition."
From Mark Mattson: "I think it's cool that you perform for high schools and share the art and culture with us."
