5 out of 5

I did not expect this, I did not expect to see a show of this quality out here in my hometown. Now. don't get me wrong, while I have enjoyed seeing shows done by this company for a long time now, this one truly stands out to me! First and foremost, Nino Casisi has brought forward to us in this community a company of actors that are really remarkable. It was a pleasure to the familiar faces of Chad, Emily Davenport, and Ryan Stevens and others; but what pleased me the most were the talents that I had not seen before on our stage, most notably Eli Biesemeyer and Raphael Tate. I do not know how he found these, and all the members of the cast, but I am pretty sure he made the right choices.

Another thing that really had me impressed with this show was the fact that the Lighting and choreography ( both the likes of which, in my opinion are BIG improvements to what we have seen previously) were done by the same guy, a student by the name of Luke Atkinson. I applaud you sir for putting forth an amazing effort, and making. a show here a rare sight to see, thank you, and I hope you come back to us again!

I only had two problems with this show. Numberone, the sound system cut out at times, and lacked dependability, though that is not something new, and while I personally did not have a problem hearing the show, that might just be because I was sitting so close. My second problem was, at times the ensemble would fumble with notes or lyrics, I noticed this the most at the end of large group numbers, not to mention the vocal problems I heard during a small group songs in Act II ( something tells me that should have been worked a time or two more).

But overall, I did really like this show, it made me smile, laugh, and even cry a little at one point!! I would recommend this musical.
