A great little theater and a wonderful performance. A few technical issues involving feedback aside, I thought the performers and orchestra did a great job.

This was the fun show that I expected. There were a few excellent actors that carried the show. All in all, an entertaining afternoon.

Guys and Dolls began 20 minutes late. The majority of the cast was inexperienced, lacked acting skills, and it showed. The production sets and choreography were amateurish and sometimes laughable. However, the lead female, Caroline Nelms, who...continued

This was the first sub-standard performance I've seen at the AVO Playhouse. The only bright spots were Miss Adelaide and Harry the Horse Who were very good. Doing G and D without the Runyanesque dialog/accent is like hearing Shakespeare with a...continued

The production was excellent! We went on opening night and they had a few issues with the sound. One mic for sure wasn't working and they had some feedback & at times we couldn't hear all the lines. This is the only reason I gave them 4 stars...continued

The show was great with good actors and actresses who sang well too. The 12 - 14 musicians live band added quality and ambiance to the show. Better than we had expected.

We thoroughly enjoyed Guys and Dolls. The performers had great voices and the songs were wonderful. Sure the stage and props are kind of summer stock but the show more than makes up for the low budget stage assistance. The theater is small so...continued
