The Canterville Ghost, by Oscar Wilde
Fun show!!!
Wednesday, October 18, 2006
I saw Canterville Ghost its 2nd night and my family and I really enjoyed it! Both the cast and the audience seemed to have fun -- it put you in a good mood when you left! The set might have been a little more creative, and the Southern accents were a little annoying at times, but the costumes were great and the ghosts were truly entertaining! All in all, a great family night out!

Narnia, by Jules Tasca, with lyrics by Ted Drachman and music by Thomas Tierney
Narnia at The Cobb Playhouse was a very enjoyable evening!
Monday, August 28, 2006
I truly enjoyed seeing Narnia the The Cobb Playhouse. I think some of the strongest performances were MaryBeth Martin (the White Witch), Aaron Jones (Edmund), and Becca Mattox and Craig Jones (Mrs. and Mr. Beaver - great chemistry!) These are not professional actors, they are kids in school, college students juggling rehearsals with school schedules, and parents, and I think the entire cast's commitment, positive attitude and hard work are to be commended. The music was amazing, performed by Morgie Peach (sp.?), who jumped in 2 weeks before Opening Night and took over like she had been there from the start. And finally, the lighting, which flowed without a hitch, was done by a talented 14-year old, Haden Banks. Keeping in mind the age and experience of a lot of these performers, I couldn't have asked for a better show!

Considering this is a non-profit theater, you have to appreciate the fact that Director John Christian continues to pull off so many successful productions. Not having funds to hire experienced staff, or really any staff at all, he finds, trains and manages students and parents to help in all areas of the theater, and what he doesn't have volunteers for he does himself.

I look forward to more presentations at this theater!
