"There are few people to whom I will say "yes" before he finishes his sentence. I have worked with Walid at Moonlit Wings Productions on a variety of projects from casting, voice over, scriptwriting, songwriting and more. He is easily the most professional, well-connected and solid man in the business. He has vision and foresight as well as passion for any project he takes on, which will be completed on time and will also, assuredly, be a success. So, if you get a call from Walid or are interested in working with him and he says, "Would you be interested..." Cut him off and say, "Yes." You will be glad you did."
- Jimmy Monack, Producer/Writer, Gumshoe Rumpus Productions

"The Park Authority SOLD OUT our performances of the High School Musical, On Stage (Summer 2008) production, which was a HUGE SUCCESS. The community loved the show, as well as the inexpensive ticket price! Thanks to Walid, who found sponsors to buy program ad space and obtained props/costumes from local high schools, we were able to keep the ticket prices down. The teens, who took part in this special camp, loved working with Walid and his creative team!!"
- Ellen Werthmann, Programming Specialist, Fairfax County Park Authority
"A musical usually takes trained performers over two months to prepare. Through a shared love of "High School Musical" teens with no former training performed the show in 14 days of rehearsal...a community effort!"
- Esther Pak, Connection Newspaper
"We have done several drama camps and this one was one of the most well run. The staff was responsible, talented, and fun. The play prep was great. Walid's leadership was especially outstanding, I encourage other parents to have their children participate in any future programs Moonlit Wings offers."
