“Sprouts is devoted to the organic principle that the theatrical repertoire grows when new scripts are fed and watered. Already, the festival, the only one of its kind in the country, has a roster of contagious successes...”
Liz Nicholls, The Edmonton Journal

“If we feed our children's imaginations on the dramatic equivalent of Big Macs and Kraft Dinner, we can't nourish them in a love for theatre at its finest. Why put up with junk theatre, when you can opt for Sprouts?”
Paula Simons, The Edmonton Journal
