The show was ok, and I'd say the goldstar price is right for it. I don't know if it was the performance or the actual play itself-but this was just ok. Some of the... continued

Great venue for show with beautiful starry sky that evening. Cooled down that evening but prepared with blankets and jackets for comfortable time. Performance was good for a local company with great vocals and adequate dancing.

Costumes, stage and choreography, and acting was good. Theatre felt very welcoming and homey although I did get a sting from a bug bite. Singing was hit and miss. ... continued

Actors were wonderful. They did a great job. The seating is a little more intimate lets say than I expected. We were able to see great even from an aisle seat in section 2.

Excellent local production. Some sound glitches which didn't bother us, as we took into account it was opening night. The setting is magical in the trees and under the... continued

Sitting in Row F, Sect. 2, the speaker distortions were so terrible that they drove us to leave this otherwise good performance.

The sound was so bad that I could not understand anything. Some people sand and there was no sound then another would sing and it was to loud. The performers were ok but the sound system sucked.

The theatre is darling and cozy if you have blankets to watch a show. Parking is a non issue is you show up ahead of time. CATS is not an easy musical. The troupe did a fantastic job. The orchestra pit was very good.

We had a great time at the show. The costumes and the synchronicity of the dance numbers was amazing. There were a few audio problems but they worked their way out as the show progressed. If you like Cats you should enjoy this performance.

The cast are unbelievable. The chorography was extremely advance for a community theater group. The costumes were exquisite. The voices were fantastic.
I will defiantly go back to see another play.

really lacking cohesion- the dancers were not dancing as a group. If was like watching finders scraping on a chalkboard. left 1/2 thru. There were a FEW great participants. too bad their caliber was so under represented.
