Unpolished but spirited production of, One of will's best comedies

See it if entertaining: playing on mistaken identity, lands desired laughs; added music & dance enhance; enthusiastic (unpolished) performances

Don't see it if when 12th Night's fully realized, it's incandescent, this isn't; acting's uneven/amateurish; attempt to set in 1920s jazz era not convincing

Don't see it if you want a fully developed and prepared concept by director Alexis Confer Read more

Overrated, Fluffy, Good singing, Disappointing, Ambitious

See it if u'll enjoy an earnest well-intentioned community theatre production w/added singing & dancing which isn't integrated well into the play.

Don't see it if you expect consistently good acting.A few of the performances were good, but a couple were very weak. Costumes were also all over the place.

Confusing

See it if into the bard's work set in the roaring '20s. An amiable troupe employing natural acting and musicianship; some good performances.

Don't see it if well... it is all over the place. The '20s angle came off forced, and despite my familiarity with the play, I found it hard to follow. Read more
