Pretty good for community theatre. Talked to one of the board members who admitted their shows can be hit or miss. This one was enjoyable. Not amazing or great, but enjoyable.
Some of the stage direction was a little odd. For example, they started with a bare stage which they then decorated AFTER the lights went out, but BEFORE the production started. Would have been more effective if they had done this DURING the play as more of a choreographed act. The way it was done seemed hurried, as if they'd almost forgotten to put up any set pieces.
One scene, that in which the choir sings, was almost unbearable. The singers were off key and tempo and the songs ran WAY WAY WAY too long without any other action. Edit this down to just one verse of the song.
A couple of the older actors had really good small town 'character' looks. The final cemetery scene was quite touching.
I highly recommend grabbing a glass of wine at Vinz, which shares patio space with the theater. We were able to order and drink our wine during the 10 minute intermission. (Make sure you order directly at the bar.)
Running time is approximately two hours and 20 minutes, with one intermission. It is most appropriate for ages 10 and up, and not recommended for children under the age of 3.
