Tommy O no is right!!!! At least get actors/actresses that fit the part. The role players look like that they were in middle school!!! Not someone who had been married 10 years!' Bad bad bad!!!! I've seen summer stock performances before this is the worse!!!'n

We are having a blast this year, too! There's so much more going on and we are so happy with all our entertainers and merchants. It's this more fun than watching a football game? 😊

So sorry that you didn't enjoy the play. Some people said it was one of the best plays we've ever done! So that just goes to show that there's always something for everyone. But we do hope you will come back and try us again.
