    Here’s what they’re saying about the shows:

    • “Our community has thoroughly enjoyed the humorous plays written by Bob Naquin. The recognition of his name always brings an increased audience. Having said that, I have to add that ‘Feeble Fables’ has definitely been the favorite so far. It was a delight to direct, much fun for the cast to perform and a great success for each of the sold out performances. We received great reviews stating that this was the best play we had ever performed.”
