The play is entertaining, fairly well cast, and the set is gorgeous. It is worth seeing. The scenes and story line moved at a good pace, and the lead actress did a marvelous job.

This was such a delightful play. The actors were very credible and were the characters. I was very impressed with the level of talent for local theatre. I was so engrossed in the story that I couldn't believe I had sat for more than two hours! ...continued

I Capture the Castle is a twee coming-of-age tale which was heart-warming and delightful to watch performed live. The acting was done well--nothing extraordinary, but fairly convincing--and the accents were passable, which is hard to accomplish....continued
