Sarah Shanelaris Loved CATS!

I have just been treated to an amazing production of Cats.

I went because I fell in love with the show as a child who saw the original in London with Elaine Paige a few times (I’m English, now living here in Meredith.) Your production was wonderful and comparable in every way.

You gave me a lovely evening out.

Thank you, and good luck ongoing to the talented cast.

John Powers Sings Interlakes Theatre Praises

We attended our first Interlakes Theater performance, “South Pacific” on Thursday.   It was outstanding!   You have done remarkable work putting together the theater company.   Your casting could not have been better.  Since Boston and Meredith are about equidistant from our house in Amherst, NH, my wife Barbara and I marvel at the difference in cost between a Boston-based production and Interlakes-based production.   We believe the quality of your production is equivalent to those we have attended in Boston, but your intimate venue and cost are remarkably better.   Thanks so much to you and the theater company for such a wonderful performance.   We look forward to Cats and Gypsy.   I see by your credits that you once acted in Gypsy.   You could no doubt step in and do it again!    The lakes region of NH is fortunate to have someone of your caliber running the show.

The McFadden’s love Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat!

I want to tell you how much Duncan and I enjoyed the final performance of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.”  Neither of us knew anything about the plot or the music, so it was a total surprise and delight.  The acting, dancing, and singing was superb, and what a treat to hear clearly(from the F row) every word sung!  Thanks to a new sound system finally?!  I still can’t comprehend how such a huge cast maneuvered so effortlessly and quickly about the stage!

Tara Colum on The Best (Worst) Christmas Pageant Ever, The Musical

Thank you for a phenomenal performance of “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever”. Our family ranging from 12-79 years old LOVED the musical production. It was a perfect start to our holiday festivities.

Merry Christmas!

Pat on The Addams Family!

I plan on seeing every one of your productions!  Last season, I almost did not go to The Addams family because I was never impressed by that TV show.  What a mistake that would have been!  Turns out that was my favorite show of the summer!

I am looking forward to the next season.

The Haye’s on The Addams Family!

I just wanted to say thank you for such a fun time at the Theater.
We saw The Adams Family and it was super.
We will be back next season.

Barbara on Not Fade Away!

Last night’s performance was exceptional! Everyone was terrific, but the three main performers were more talented than the original stars ever were–just couldn’t get enough of it! On another “note,” please consider Austin Price for doing Elvis. Besides resembling him, he has the facial expressions and body movements down. He is a dead ringer.

Cindy on Sister Act!

Hi Nancy,

“Sister Act” was definitely one of the best shows I have ever seen at Interlakes Theatre. Incredible choreography, awesome acting and singing by all the actors, perfection in every detail, and an incredible energy level sustained throughout the entire show. The entire cast portrayed to the audience what fun they were having!!!! The stain glass backdrop was exquisite, awesome(how many hours of painstaking painting was involved?!) and mesmerizing. And, of course, you were fantastic as always.(and I’m sure totally exhausted by now!!!!) Hats off to everyone involved in the production. There were so many details and humorous character acting to watch that I had hoped to return for a 2nd performance, but unfortunately my wish could not be realized, and the last performance is in 15 minutes!!! However, our Hanover friends were so impressed that they probably will buy flex tickets for next season. Yay!!!!!

Were you able to locate a suitcase style record player(like I had in college!)? Probably you have by now, but if not, I learned last evening that one of my neighbors has one and maybe two. Let me know if you still need one.

Congrats to all.
