Great show - lively cast, nice set. We sat in the upper balcony and at times some of the voices were not very clear. Overall, worth seeing.

Amazing singing, great set and costumes, and of course a timeless story that my kids and I really enjoyed. My kids are 7 and 9 and closed their eyes for the last ghost of death, but they really walked away remembering the true spirit of...continued

Everything was perfect. The play, the venue, and even the special effects. This is a must see, and I've got a new venue to go to in the East Bay. And of course, the discount was the icing on the whole thing.

I had never watch this play. It was very enjoyable, with a mixture of music, suspense, and joyful ending. The actors were very good, especially Mr. Scrooge.
