I was wondering how a local theater was going to be able to pull of this musical and I was pleasently suprise that they had the cast to support it. Sit up front so that you can hear some of the lyrics. The only problem was the theater was...continued

Great family entertainment. Loved the quartet! And Winthrop stole the show with his song "Gary, Indiana."

I thought it was a very nice smaller theater. I thought the performance was great. I would see it again.

I was very disapointed and surprised at this show. I have seen 3 other shows at this theatre and they were all fantastic. Odd Couple, Into the Woods and Twelve Angry Men were all out of this world! Alas that was not to be the case with this...continued

A really good community production of this fun musical. For less than the price a movie ticket, the entire family can enjoy this live production of the classic filled with singing, dancing, comedy and romance. The only minor suggestions for...continued

Truly disappointing. We saw Twelve Angry Men and it was fantastic.......this was not. Adults in the show didn't know their lines, didn't know the lyrics, didn't smile, the leads were mediocre. We left at intermission. Normally we have a high...continued

Pretty well done for a small theater. Tommy and Widow Paroo were very good. The Marian and the professor had ok voices but were not strong enough to be heard over the music and other singers. May have been better if they had been mic'd.

Theatre seats about 85. The seats are comfortable & leg room abound.
As to show, we went opening night, so there were some glitches, but no so much that you say it affected the over all performance. I am sure that after a few more showing they...continued

The Attic Theater has only been around for a little over 1 year and I heard about it from someone in the cast. It was a great production...very upbeat and funny. I am on the board of The Orange County Children's Theater and have seen plenty...continued

It's a hometown story so I guess it was good. A little unpolished with such a large cast. I'm old and originally from Iowa and the set didn't remind me of my youth. This was my first show here. I will return before I make a final judgement of...continued

Pleasantly surprised! We heard from friends who went earlier and said it was so awful that they walked out at Intermission. But we went anyway, and glad we did. I'm guessing that the quality of the performance is highly dependent on which actors...continued

Probably one of the MOST amateurish performances I've ever attended (sorry, guys)! I didn't hear ONE song sung with a chord in it and there weren't many who could sing to begin with. This troope needs serious vocal training if they're going to...continued

I got the feeling this wasn't a true "actors" theater...more like a pay to play theater business where soccer moms can bring their kids for the "experience" of it all and not because of their true talent. Audience consists of aunts and uncles and...continued
