Audiences love Jack the Ripper!

After the show on October 26, Kris Reynolds spent a half hour telling us how good it was!

“The show was great!  Everyone should go!!” – Karen Collins

“Oh, I really really enjoyed it!  Costumes, set, lights, special FX all on point!  I was super impressed with Steve Russo!  He was so good!  Your Jack was great, and all the girls as a whole worked very well together.  It was honestly very very very well done!  I’d see it again if I could!” – Amanda Arruda

“Very impressive production of this musical.  Great sets, music, costumes, four musicians, great cast including Jack the Ripper played by Dustin Teuber, who gives a chilling performance.  Not to be missed!  Small theatre where every seat is close up.  They even have snacks and a bar!  Support local theatre at a fraction of the cost!” – Tom Anderson
