I actually liked the spoken dialogue much more than the music. Orchestra was...continued

Talented voices, but more tailored for children than adults. There was some adult humor, but not enough to warrant going without children IMHO.

Ford's Theatre is my favorite venue in town. Our seats were in the front row and we didn't miss a minute of fun. The charming cast very deftly worked with audience members.
