Customer Comments

We love Theatrefolk and Lindsay Price. Last year we did Deck the Stage... it was fabulous! Deck the Stage is perfect for a high school production. Ms. Price's dialogue is witty and charming, with just the right measure of silliness that can really be hammed up.

I know this year's production of The Merrie Christmas Show will be just as successful as Deck the Stage.
