- William

“I wanted to thank you and Shetler Studios for all your help in putting up our production of The Winter's Tale. It was incredibly well-received, and we had a fantastic run. Your support and generosity were integral to our success. Hopefully, we can bring another production to Shetler, very soon.”

- Rebecca

"I always call Shetler first.  They have a variety of rental options, clean studios and facilities, and pianos that are in tune and regularly maintained.”

“We truly appreciate Shetler Studios’ willingness to work within our budget and for pushing things around to schedule us in, pretty much last-minute.  The staff was very responsive to our needs each night and we can't thank them enough!”
