Great show! Fun from beginning to end. Actors have wonderful voices and seem to enjoy themselves and the band backing them up is fantastic!

We went to this play loaded with high expectations. Unfortunately, the talent just was not there for this production. Since there was little dialogue, the play relied on great voices. However, the voices were just not very good. While these young...continued

A nice assortment of "oldies" songs, well sung, and additional entertaining dancing and acrobatics displays! It's a happy, fun show by a troupe that seems to enjoy working together. A wide range of ages would enjoy these songs.

The music is amazing and the cast really gives 100%. This is actually more of a concert than a musical show. There is a thin story line described in the playbill, but it is only hinted at during the show. If the plot was better developed, they...continued

We left saying how much we wanted to tell people to see this show. The cast was so talented, if not always perfect. I smiled the whole time.
