The show was great. The 8 price cast was terrific. They were all strong. The songs and costuming terrific. Very intimate small theatre and play moved quickly. Live combo band bonus.

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... continued
