Kyra honey, book reports go away when you graduate. This wasn't a "review" it was a report. Thanks for the synopsis and all the feel good comments, but there were definite and outstanding flaws in the casting.

Bring Ear plugs. There are so many horrible singers in this show, you will need them. Clearly this reporter got paid to write such a glowing review.

Yeah...there was some really, really poor singing. The kind of singing that makes you squirm in your seat--and not the good kind of squirming!

I can't wait for Chico State to do it next year...it should be interesting.
