What a terrific and funny show! All the actors were terrific; we especially enjoyed the comedy of the actors that portrayed Hysterium and Pseudolus. Thanks for a fun afternoon!”- Jill Betz

“Fantastic show…congratulations for putting it all together so seamlessly!  Just loved meeting the cast afterward, also. Would have loved to say hi to…Mary Jo, for great musical direction.  Experiencing live action comedy of this caliber in our own neighborhood is such a thrill.  Keep up the good work and I look forward to the next show!” – Pat Bennett

Energy from start to finish.  Raised orchestra was pure genius.  Craig and Mary Jo were the perfect combination for this show and the casting was brilliant.  Jeff and Jared were perfect together and if you missed it….shame on you.” – Nancy Stearns

The show was terrific. Casting, sets, costumes, pacing, stagecraft — everything. Jeff Rouse made the show, but the other actors were also very, very good, and I loved the mix of ages.” – Evelyn Bless
“It was our first time to the Carrollwood Cultural Center. We felt special because of the attention and help everyone bestowed on us. It was a delightful evening with an exceptional show. It was most enjoyable. It was very well done: the acting, costumes, sets and music. Thanks. We will be back.” – Marilyn Carr
