The professionalism of the organization cannot be overstated. The foundation of Gilbert and Sullivan operettas remains, but each year sees expansion of the repertoire. Wonderful operettas share the season with American musicals and, lately, some thoughtful, well researched productions of performances not seen for years....More

This is a must see attraction for theater goers. People come to Wooster just to see a show or two each summer. This year's shows were better than ever. Plan ahead for next summer.

Can't be missed if you like early American musicals and operettas! Great company with talented young artists, classical stage direction. Highly recommended!

Such great musicals from years gone by. Seating was spacious leg-wise and sufficed for the chair room, side to side. We really ejoyed ourselves and it was a quick drive to our B&B, the Mirabelle B&B.

We we're lucky to catch a performance of Pinafore during a visit to College of Wooster. My son and I had a great time at this event. There were people of all ages in the audience. I am so glad we we're there.

Stage pacing and choreography sharp and impressive. Overall somewhat improved over last year. Sung diction could be better, as we couldn't always follow song lyrics.
