This comedy is an ill-contrived farce with little artistic merit. The semi-talented eccentrics living on the social fringes who attempt to bring this play to life fail miserably. Their performances, and the play, should be interred in the annals of theatre history forever as a source of mockery and pity for future generations. Particularly egregious are the performances of Christine Helsel and Craig Soich. Angela Godin, having majored in theatre, is a passable actress only by community theatre standards; otherwise, she is a black sheep of the industry due to insufficient talent. The rest of the cast, who shall remain unnamed, are also amateurish and incompetently directed tyros who have no business commanding even a penny for watching their antics.

Boris was pretty funny. Then again, I thought "man getting kicked by football" was the funniest video in the Sopringfield Film Festival on The Simpsons television cartoon. Take my comment with a grain of salt.

Play sucks. Actors and actresses suck even worse. The result? If you see this show you are a sucker.

Many people give homeless people money because they feel sorry for them. Many people give community theatre actors money in kind for the same reason.

This is truly the special olympics of acting. Unfortunately, there are no other contestants and these are the most profoundly retarded actors and actresses you will find.

One often sees passers-by at Ligonier Theatre look away hurriedly and abashedly as they race away. It is like they are escaping a half-clothed tosspot lying in the street or dismembered parts fro ma train wreck.

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy. These actors on the stage make me cry.

Donald, you are so right! Could not have said it better. But I can say it worse. This show bites! And not in a good way!

Not sure what all the fuss is about. Come on people. It is community theatre. Not broadway. They are not that bad. Got my 15 bucks worth because the theatre needs it to keep going. Without it you have nothing, no way for local talent to express themselves and grow

I could give somebody 15 bucks to urinate in public, too. That is self-expression. But if I do the community will stink, arguably, as bad as it does with this theatre in existence

There once was a fellow named dracky
and characters equally wacky
but in Ligonier
They are equally queer
lame, without talent, and tacky

Best part about the show was it started 15 minutes late. Worst part about the show was it ended 15 minutes late.

Dracula was wearing a hairpiece from a dollar store. I mean, how embarrassing. Do these people have no pride?

The people of the town have more money than the average person. The people of the stage in the town have less money than the average person and less talent than the average actor.

Is this sort of like kings and queens of yore getting amusement from court jesters?

Why do they do it?

You people are silly. What in the hell did you expect from bit players in a small town play? This isn't Broadway for chrissakes. And Meredith - what planet are you from? What kind of generalization krap is that?

I am from the planet Earth where many have a talent dearth but of those many a few can't see they act so damn pathetically.

As a result they make people expecting to see talent suffer through two hours of pain. They need to get a life and get off the stage.
