The performance was excellent. The young cast truly talented. Amazing to find out some "adult" characters were actually high school (or just out) age. Again the performance was excellent

I was not aware this was put on my Youth Theatre group and I must say I was pleasantly suprised at the talent there is out there. Great performance.
