I went with four others and they did not assign us seats together (2 and 2 on opposite sides). We did not know that the actor's were mostly students. I probably enjoyed it more and understood it better than the other 3 people I went with. Their criticism that it was overly long and needed editing probably has merit. The subject matter was not designed to give you a Happy Christmas feeling, and the resolution did not do much to make up for that. Still, my feeling is that the principle did a great job and it was very fun to watch her go through the shenanigans that the play put her character through. The others were weaker players, but they are students and the play did not require strong acting from them. For the sets, the company did a lot with a little. I would go to this company again.

Wow, what fun this was!! and very impressive to see such talent from the young men and women in the Actors Conservatory. The sets were very interestingly moved to and fro...that in itself was a show, and such creative use of space and materials! ...continued
