Broward College, Central Campus Theater in building 6, on Sunday, the 1st of November. The play was performed by Broward College students. The type of stage was Proscenium stage with extended apron. I thought it was a little bit small, but it did not show as a problem. The pre-show was dark and a feel of suspense. I felt excited to see how everything would play out. The play takes place down south of Chicago in the 1950’s.
Their costumes were amazing very realistic and funny, again love their creativity, especially how they added little bits of modern comedy and the narration was great. When the audience had the break and coming back in their setup was still great everything was perfect nothing falling or hanging off. As well as the switching of lights in the beginning middle and end it was beautiful and smooth.
The play I went to see was Almost Maine, and I went to see it on March 4, 2016.
On February 26th 2016, I went out with my friend to saw this event. It was the first time of my life to be in such production. I was not a fan of theaters. I thought they are boring. Now, my mind has changed because the play was amazing. So, on the next day,
The acting in Of Thee I Sing was nothing but spectacular. The acting from all of the actors was believable. The way how they projected their voices was well done and the how they delivered their lines was well executed. An actor who did these and more was Kyle Laing
Guys and Dolls is an iconic musical that first opened almost sixty-five years ago. Not only has it endured the test of time, but it has thrived throughout the years, winning many awards and enjoying several revivals in numerous different theatres since its first run. It remains today a popular musical, often produced around the country in community and professional theatre alike. However, although having the capabilities necessary for this production, Signature Theatre is not likely to put on a production of Guys and Dolls at this time, due to their focus on contemporary or modern work rather than classical musicals.
First, I’d like to commend all the actresses and actors on their excellent performances and voices, but, as always, there were some that stood out more than others. I thought Hannah Eckert and Joe Campbell, playing Jimmy and Billie, did and excellent job working with each other. Their duets were beautifully sung and had great synchronization, especially during the song ’S Wonderful which had them, perfectly synchronized, dancing up and down the stairs in what I believed to be a difficult dance number. Also, I’d like to comment on Tony Frenchu and Melanie Bratsch performances, who were clearly the audiences favorite, and mine, due to the amount of cheering and the standing ovation they received. Tony was perfect as cookie with his tall frame
The production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street by Stephen SOndheim. It took place at the Cabe Theatre on Hendrix Campus. This play was November 2nd through November 4th at 7:30 pm and also November 5th at 2:00 pm. At first this production was confusing and I really did not understand the concept of this play ,but as it began to develop I began to understand. I enjoyed the play it was very interesting and fierce. I am more of the type to like musicals over any other theatre. This production made me like musicals even more. The way this was presented was amazing and delightful. Im very happy that I attended this production.
doubt I thought the singing was outstanding, just amazing. I didn't really notice special effects

The acting; which we know is subservient to the music was great. Caroline Meisner who play Mary was spectacular. She was very much so Mary Poppins. She wasn’t acting when she played the part. She embodied the spirit of Mary Poppins and allowed it to shine through. Bert was played by Bredley McBride and the same goes for him. His performance was so memorable he is now nicknamed Bert. The other two performances that stood out to me was Jane and Michael. It’s always difficult to cast children actors and actress because of their attention span and they are easily distracted. But McLaurin Hull and Christian Harmston were excellent. They performed like any other actor and actress that’s serious about their work. I was impressed. Even though Mary
