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? 😊
