I felt the show was very amateur. Some of the cast members were excellent(Anita for example) and others were just OK. I didn't believe that everyone was committed to their parts but overall it was entertaining.

Terrific show....great dancing and singing, costumes and sets. Only negative was occasional unevenness in microphones. Should have had much greater support from the public.

Everything was very, very good -- much better than I expected (though I'm not sure what I expected) -- but the total was less than the sum of the constituent parts. The venue has little intimacy -- and I felt disconnected in the cavernous...continued

It's a shame that more people in Alameda do not come out to support their local theatre. ACLO does some really good productions.

Very well done - great dancing, very strong cast, orchestra played very well
Only downside was the sound was either over or under miked and not consistent

The production itself was excellent. The direction and choreography were first rate. The cast was very strong and did a great job. My only critique is the sound system. The actors were wearing head mics and there was a lot of distortion and...continued

That was the last performance, but it was great. Anything that ALCO does is worth going to. So GO!

I think the Sound Designer/Engineer was completely DEAF.
Worst sound at an event EVER.
Didn't make a single attempt at fixing feedback, broken mics, blaringly loud mics...it was obvious she didn't know what she was doing and/or didn't care at...continued

The Alameda Civic Light Opera's presentations are truly excellent. Drawing from the best talent in the bay area and the best direction, the musicals are a delight. Still remaining this summer are "Forever Plaid" and "Grease".

The lead singers were terrific, the play was long and dragged at some parts.

I was totally amazed at the high level of talent, song and dance. Jerome Robbins' West Side Story is the popular/fantastic standard for all others to be judged against with George Chadkris and Anita Moreno dancing, singing..........and this ACLO...continued
