Some posts from the audience:
"Yes ... they went back in (to see the show) and were thrilled!
Those characters made all the difference. They spent sooooo much time with them and then the girls thoroughly enjoyed the show. I was truly touched by the kindness of these kids. Gaston giving them a rose, the Beast a hug, the wolves taking off their masks to show their pretty faces, and the silly girls, and there may be some I'm forgetting. Not to be too corny, but it was a life moment for me discovering that there is still real kindness in the world -- the way teenagers are portrayed to the rest of us is often negative. I think people need to meet and know more about this special group of kids. And I was so impressed with the entire performance, I practically cried at the end. You will see us at a lot more of the HS productions. And my girls too!"
"I took my daughter and 3 grandchildren, ages 5 and 6 to the Saturday afternoon performance. We had a wonderful time!! The level of professionalism of the show was amazing. I loved that we could “meet” the performers in costume after the show. We will certainly attend again if appropriate for children. Most high schools do not do shows that young children can enjoy. I hope you consider another show that is appropriate. Congratulations on a phenomenal show!!!!!!!!!!"
"Once again, a GREAT show; the kids were amazing, and the whole production was seamless. Congratulations on another tremendous season."
"To the Nashoba Drama Staff...
I cannot begin to tell you how much our family enjoyed your recent production of Beauty and the Beast. From start to finish, it was flawless and, as professional as any show we have seen in Boston and surrounds performed by adult professionals. Your casting choices was beyond expertly done and perfect. Each of your leads were brilliant in both their character and their amazing voices. Both Belle and the Beast's voices sent chills up my spine; tears filled our eyes as we were swept up in the emotions of the songs they performed. BRAVO, BRAVO, BRAVO on perhaps the best show we have ever seen! We cannot wait to come back to see next year's season."
Peter --- and family
". . . suggested that we go see "Beauty and the Beast." I'm so glad she did, or we would've missed something spectacular. My compliments to your daughter . . . and to everyone involved in the cast and crew. I couldn't believe I wasn't in the Theater District!"
"There were two older ladies behind me at the Saturday night show, and they were so fun to listen to. Every time there was a break in the scenes, they would have a running commentary going: “Wow, she’s really good,” “he’s really good,” “the sets are amazing,” “look at the costumes,” “this is like a professional show,” etc.
It made my night!"
just have to share how awesome a job you ALL did to bring this story to
life!: decorating the lobby, using the whole theatre & not just the
stage, allowing the audience get involved in The Beast's
transformation, having the cast stay in character during the Meet n'
Greet... You made this an extremely special 1st theatre experience for
my 6yo, who loved this story anyway! I felt so proud of my fellow
(Chieftains); I was very involved in the Drama Club & in shows when I
went to NRHS (30+ yrs ago!). You made our 5hr trip down from VT very
worthwhile! Great production & some truly talented young adults!!"
