"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
"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."

"Romanov was just astounding. I was transported. I was actually taken back in time. This production should tour to Sydney and then nationally."

"The BYTE Masterclass actors have done an incredible job, bringing these people to life and working together they deliver a pretty slick production to commemorate beautifully those who perished with the Titanic 100 years ago."

"Hi everyone, for those that don't know me i'm an ex-BYTES member who became a professional performer. Because of BYTES I gained the confidence to become a professional fire performer, so even if you don't become an actor your life can take paths you can't even imagine. Currently auditioning for Burning Man festival in America. Thanks Robyn "
Reece Dunn Professional Performer co-director SOULFIRE
"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! Laura Obbard August 2017
THANK YOU FOR YOUR KIND WORDS, THEY ARE ALWAYS VERY MUCH APPRECIATED.
