Ithe production was very cute. I was on the right side of the stage in row B. This was probably one of the worse seats in the house. This was not helpful to hear the singing while sitting next to the musicians.
Otherwise it was a fun experience.

My 18 year old daughter loved it! It didn't hurt that Aaron Carter was in it though. I enjoyed it to great seats!!

My daughter and I were extremely disappointed. The reputation of the show had us expecting something way, way better. We even considered leaving during intermission but stayed with the hope it would get better. No such luck. We do however, still...continued

No A. Carter, even though advertisement shows he's on stage...
Extremely depressing theater with the most uncomfortable seats ever-possibly the same seats used when the show opened in the early 60's.

Our seats were wonderful. The production was terrific - perfectly suitable for kids and adults. The actors came out afterwards to greet the audience and pose for photos. All in all, a fantastic theater evening!

Spend your evening somewhere else. While the four veteran actors were fine, Carter and his ingenue co-star seemed uncomfortable and since the theater is so small and was only half-full, that made us all awkward. The young lady would be better...continued

The show was okay but just not very exciting. I found myself struggling to stay focused. It was extremely distracting throughout the entire performance there was stomping and banging coming from the theater above which added awkward moments...continued

The theatre is old and seems a bit runned down. It is all "orchestra" seating and when we got there we found our seats were on the side of the stage. The cast pays attention to the right and left sides of the audience but if you prefer center...continued

The voices and acting of the performers were amazing. The two-person back up musical band, pianist and harpist, was adept. Despite the small production, it was so entertaining and reminded me of exemplary high school musicals where everybody...continued

This event should get ZERO stars. I applaud anyone that performs, however, this was the absolute WORST theater performance ever. I looked at all the reviews and was hopeful that I would have a positive experience. Absolutely not. DO NOT WASTE YOUR...continued

This is a very small theatre (~150 seats?).
Intimate setting. Actors were enjoyable.
I assume that Aaron Carter had a cold for our show.

This was everything we expected it to be. The female lead was exceptional. Will be seeing more of her we are sure!
