Here's what people are saying about The MAD* Factory:
“Dear Linda and everyone connected with “Seussical the Musical”,
I came to Opening Night because I am Ella’s Grammie Annie. I came on Saturday evening because I enjoyed it so much on Friday. I am writing now because you ALL deserve the utmost praise for this most enjoyable, funny, sad, imaginative, convincing and completely professional production. It is one of the most oustanding theatre productions I have ever seen—amateur of professional. No moments that dragged—NONE! No weak characters. No lapses of character from anyone—everyone was ALWAYS completely “into it” on stage. Wonderful choreography! Always something going on that was relevant to the plot. Every character acting and reacting very convincingly.Totally enjoyable. What a priviledge for everyone to be a part of this. Bravissimo!! No one should miss this show.
In High School and University I was involved with many Gilbert and Sullivan Operettas in the chorus or orchestra. More recently I was Sister Henrietta (Instead of Bishop) and in the chorus of a local production of “Anything Goes”. I also played in the orchestra for “Footloose” and “Oklahoma”. I am an amateur clarinetist playing in orchestras, bands, dance bands, shows and in LOTS of chamber music groups locally, in Interlochen, MI, and on the beach of Ischia, Italy. I see a lot of amateur musicals and few would get such high praise as I am giving your “Seussical, the Musical”
They do great work, please consider a generous donation.
