"BYTE offers students from 5-18 professional studio training in acting, dancing and musical theatre with several public performances every year. This esteemed training ground, enriches and builds talent and perhaps more importantly personal character. BYTES showcase presentations add the imperative gloss."
Ian Austin Review Sunshine Coast Daily
"Metamorphoses is a coup for both BYTE and Anywhere Theatre Festival, which celebrates performances anywhere but in theatres. This is the most powerful and engaging production to fit the brief. Let’s hope we don’t need to wait until next year’s festival to experience this sort of inspired live entertainment again."

Loved the recent play Metamorphoses!! Se exciting with the water choreography, thought provoking stories and a healthy dash of humour. Great work everyone!

Congratulations cast and crew of Carousel - you blew me away! The talent and skill displayed was outstanding. Those voices! I booked another ticket so I could come back and see it again.
We are so fortunate to have BYTES local to us, our children have so much fun, have made great friends and gained so much confidence. Thank-you for all you do, you are all appreciated very much.

Wow!!! Carousel last night was outstanding. Superb performances. I always have to pinch myself to remind me that these are not professionals. I have no doubt that one day though some of them will be. Funny, poignant, sad. Great singing, fabulous acting. Another job well done, BYTES.

"I saw OLIVER on Wednesday night and would like to say how amazing and blown away I was by the entire performance! The entire cast of Oliver has truly astounded me, every person was stellar in their role. Truly a great evening of entertainment, I will be sure to return."

My son has been involved in this fantastic company for 12 years!! Through that time he has grown as a performer and the confidence he has in all areas of his life is amazing. He sang the anthems for Anzac Day in front of a huge crowd with no sign of nerves when he was in Year 8!! The skills he has learnt from acting to tap dancing are amazing!! This company is a fantastic way for children to be involved in performing arts.

It's always a pleasure to watch talent!! To me, BYTES is BYTES and all very deserving of support.

"Just watched Cabaret for the first time. I loved it!
And it was an intense nostalgia trip...brought a lot of pride to what we all created. Belated thank you for the experience."

"Thought i just might mention that BYTES is one of the best things that ever happened to me."
" I am just home from watching Peter Pan - it was a truly gorgeous show. Yet again I am struck by how much each of you give to our young people. As a mother, and as a school counsellor, I cannot thank you enough for the work that you do. Opportunities for our children to be accepted without question, to challenge themselves, to connect with others, to build their sense of self, to express and read emotion, to have role models they admire and trust . . . . these things cannot be measured. In a world which insists our young people grow up and grow old before their time, it is these things will be their footholds as they navigate the journey to adulthood. I recommend Byte and all it represents to at least once a week to the parents I work with. As a mum, I thank my lucky stars that Alli has been fortunate enough to have you all in her life. Thank you."

"Just wanted to say how much we really enjoyed Oklahoma. The cast, the singing, the dancing in fact everything was fantastic. No need to go to Brisbane we have it right here on the Sunshine Coast - what talent."

Just also wanted to say thank you for all the opportunities you give the kids. Thanks for giving up your weekend to let them perform and all the extra rehearsal time etc. It is lovely to see such dedication and love of your job and the amazing shows you put on. There are so many places that just see their performing arts schools as businesses without obviously loving to see kids develop and nurtured..thank you for what you give the theatrical kids on the coast..wish I could love accounting as much as you obviously love what you do!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR KIND WORDS, THEY ARE ALWAYS VERY MUCH APPRECIATED.
