The actors were very good with strong voices. The use of the stage was well done. The sound at the Grove needs to be upgraded. That will greatly increase the enjoyment of the evening.

For a small local theater, this was a stellar production. The voices were uniformly excellent and the piano a nice touch instead of canned music. It cost a little more than a movie and the whole family really enjoyed it.
Good work - Grove!

From the overture to the final waltz this was a wonderful production of Sondheim's Romantic Musical! The entire cast was terrific - complete with an outstanding Petra! Good job everyone! I may see it again!
