A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens, adapted by Wally Hinds
Pretty good
Saturday, November 25, 2006
Kudzu pulled off a decent show, but it lacked pizazz. In other words, it just wasn't extraordinary. They do the same mediocre job every year. One thing that would make the show better is if they did Linda Uzelac's musical version like they did at Village Plyhouse of Roswell. Brink Miller(Scrooge) was absolutely outstanding, as always. He carried the show to its full extent. What an incredible actor. I truly believe he could have made it on Broadway if he'd attempted to. There were also some other great people like Brad Zuber(Marley/Present)and Wally Hinds(Fezziwig/Old Joe/Beggar). They were hilarious and super-talented. Brian Rooney(Young Scrooge) and Karen Rooker(Belle) were wonderful too, and they had very believable chemistry in their scene. Sally Noonan(Mrs.Cratchit) has a beautiful voice and I enjoyed listening to her. Those twin red-heads,Jackson and Richard Henry,were very entertaining with their flips, too. Everybody else was just, well, average. You really can't say much about them. I do want to note that the little kids were the weakest part of the show. They sang way too loud and obnoxiously during "Carol of the Bells" and should be pulled from that number. All in all, the show was very enjoyable and I recommend that everyone should go see it.

It was outstanding! I have never seen such a talented group of people in my life! The direction and production and stage was magnificent. I recommend that everyone should attend shows at this theatre. The most wonderful part of the show was the title. It was hot!

Alice: An Adaptation of Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll
Friday, November 10, 2006
You would think that North springs would have amore experienced cast for their show but the cast was largely comprised of underclassmen. They really weakened the show. Greg Kamp isn't a real actor, just a fruity dancer. The rest of the cast was pretty good, but it could have been better cast. I mean, Rebecca Bruder doesn't even have blonde hair for the role of Alice. The production was good though, because it seemed as though cast actually cared about the quality of the show, unlike in Ragtime. I must say that the emo techies need to step it up because they're kind of slacking off. They're probably too busy cutting their wrists backstage so they lose focus during performances. I definitely recommend that people attend shows at this wonderful theatre.

Guys and Dolls, by Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser, Book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows
It was great, except for the pit
Thursday, June 1, 2006
The show was fantastic. The singing, the acting, the dancing was all magnificent. The worst performer was good. The show might have been better if they hadn't gotten a pregnant woman to direct AND choreograph it. But hey, she got the job done well. The pit was probably the weakest part of the show. They played out of tune a lot and often got ahead of the actors. It was probably due to a lack of good musical direction. Aurora should definitely reconsider who they hire in the band.
