I went with three friends and we all loved it! The theater was small so we were very close to the action. The slope of the seats was steep so each row had views unobstructed by big heads. The play was very entertaining and all of the actors had...continued

It was really pleasant. The show was well done and very very enjoyable. The venue was clean and small which was perfect. We did not have strain to see the actors and the sound was perfect.

This was a well-acted, uplifting and enjoyable play! The venue is intimate and the audience felt as if they were in the scene with the actors. Wonderful singing and dancing and acting. A real treat! I will most certainly go to more offerings...continued
