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

DASH is like the local Tony awards, “Distinguished Achievement and Special Honors”, offered by the Eastern Massachusetts Association of Community Theatres (EMACT).  Reviewers watch performances of each show and make detailed ratings of all aspects.  Those with the highest ratings are nominated.  There were 192 shows this season.

Three nominations were earned by the TCS production of Lost in Yonkers by Neil Simon, directed by Ryan Began, presented in February 2017.

  • Supporting Actress in a Play – Angela Rossi as Bella

And the winner was Zack Perry!
