I laughed until I cried and thoroughly enjoyed the show. Perfect show for my first visit ever to the Mansfield Playhouse! Great show, great cast, great acting and a great theatre!
I have been going to the Playhouse for over twenty years, and I have never seen a bad show.
My first time ever being at the Playhouse was this weekend … The kids are doing an amazing job. The director has done amazing with them. I will absolutely be returning.
