Critic and Audience Reviews

This superbly executed laughfest, on the other hand, gets just about everything very, very right.

I came prepared to be scared but instead found a hilarious production of this classic tale. Very fun evening…laugh out loud funny…

The three actors portraying all roles were imaginative and energetic. It was very tongue-in-cheek funny. Excellent choice for the Halloween season.

You definitely exceeded my expectations! The three actors were hilarious and kept the audience laughing right to the end. Bravo to all involved!
