Venue is excellent. Volunteers helping are just as good. The performances including the one last night 'don't dress for dinner' was done very well. Great place to go for an escape.

Watching the Wizard of Oz brought back memories of my childhood. I can still see Dorothy and her buddies trouncing along the yellow brick road. The production brings out the kid that lives within each of us.
