...the audience gets fast-paced, non-stop entertainment, forms the impression that the cast gets along even backstage, and reciprocates by participating in the joy of their performance.

Special kudos to Josh Holly and Charles Ancheta. Listening to Mr. Holly's guitar skills was pure pleasure without need of illegal substances. Listening to Mr. Ancheta's renditions of Billy Joel's songs was exemplary, rivaling (maybe even outdoing) the original performer's during his heyday.

The savvy inclusion of tv show themes in the repertoire was delightful gravy on top of a quality-rich selection of songs from the '50s to early '80s. The advantage of this timeframe is there's even plenty more to choose from should the production feel the need to rotate
numbers and keep the show fresh for future or repeating audiences.

As visitors from NYC where this kind of entertainment abounds, we were merely looking for "something to do" at night in Savannah other than imbibing on River Street. Realizing that the crux of the city's appeal is touring the historic district in the daytime, we weren't expecting much from this evening show. "Something to do" turned out to be one of the highlights of a wonderful visit, thank you!

The performers are soooo talented and attractive that any show they are presenting when you are in Savannah will be excellent. The old theater is so compact that any seat is fine and the acoustics are great. The music is live and the band is terrific. You will be impressed with the variety and appeal,of the many costumes the cast changes into. A great value and a wonderful asset to Savannah. There are limited toilet facilities, but the intermissions are long enough for everyone to get in and out. BTW, you might enjoy visiting Parker's, a Savannah icon, just behind the theater during intermission or before/after the performance. Parker's has everything a theater goer could desire.

We attended the Joseph & Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat performance in February , 2013. All of us live in different states & had seen many local theatre performances. None was ever equal to this performance!! They were so professional & the theatre is gorgeous as well . We would happily have sat through the entire performance again if we had been able . In fact, after it was I dr we all looked at one another & at the same time said"wow! I would live to see them again! They were awesome. "

Don't miss this theatre & it's theatrical troupe.
