AlexisM’s review

This was my first time at the Historic Mounds Theater, and I was impressed with the care they have taken with the decor in this intimate house. Seating was comfortable, with choices. We sat at a table where we enjoyed cookies and beverages (coffee, beer) during the show. Productions of Terry Pratchett plays are rare, so I was pleased to find one locally. Unfortunately, much of his humorous writing was inaudible as performers were unmiked and failed to project even back to the third row. This is community theater, not Broadway after all, and the cast was no doubt paid (or unpaid) accordingly. They get an A for effort, and I did have a pretty good time. Improving the sound system and directing the actors to speak to the whole room would bump up my rating a notch.
