Reviews from Past Producers

"Why wouldn't an agent come to the middle of nowhere? There's lots of theatrical talent in the middle of nowhere."

A high school drama club prepares for their opening night of Anne of Green Gables.

The performance starts out normally enough. But when a rumour spreads that there is an acting agent in the audience, the students scramble to be discovered.

Anarchy ensues! Wigs fall off, ankles are sprained, and the stage manager sets fire to the prompt script. After the dust clears, the true identity of the agent is revealed. Perfect for novice actors.

I have to tell you that my students loved performing Anne-Arky and Swimming With Sins last year. I'm really excited about the plays I've read from your service this year, too.

My auditorium is going through a bit of a challenging time (space is tight). I'm going to go black boxes and minimal costumes this year, and there are so many quality one acts from your service to choose from. I can't wait to share them with the students.
