7/21/2010 - Girls Night is definitely one for the ladies! Review
But the less-than-traditional audience that filled the theater was merely a reflection of the show on stage. As the name suggests, "Girls Night" is definitely one for the ladies, although there were a handful of brave men in the crowd on opening night. ("Suckers!" the welcoming voice-over playfully taunted.) On the surface "Girls Night" appears to be a glorified bachelorette party onstage, but at its core, the show is a relatively rousing two-hour celebration of girl power.

From The Philadelphia Inquirer, By Toby Zinman: The "girls" who came to see Girls Night were every age, shape, size, race, and color. There were even a few guys. A group of 11 high school teachers was sitting next to me. Everybody seemed to have the same good time.

2/17/2010 - 'Til Death: Late Night Catechism' gives the audience top billing Review
The line on the accompanying pop-out box says “Play review,” but “’Til Death Do Us Part: Late Nite Catechism 3” is more an event. The audience is the show.
Late Nite Catechism
By Vicki Quade & Maripat Donovan
Late Nite Catechism is an uproariously funny play that takes the audience back to their youth. The irrepressible Sister teaches class to a roomful of "students." Throughout the course of the class the benevolent instructor rewards the "students" for correct answers with glow-in-the-dark rosaries and other nifty prizes. Naughty students may well find themselves on stage sitting in a corner reflecting their actions. However, even the most reluctant "students" will be clamoring to get into this Sister's class. Now in its 20th year, Late Nite Catechism has brought its nostalgic kick to every state in the U.S. as well as to Canada, the U.K., and Australia.

"I wanted to let you know what a great time we had with Late Nite Catechism.
Being the 'theme park capital of the world', this was a completely new type of event for this area. I know the show well and am very aware of the universal appeal it has. You don't have to be Catholic to 'get it'. You can be a 'Public' and still relate.
Everything ran smoothly. Thanks to our production rep, Rick Dines, for his professionalism. He kept 'class' running smoothly which allowed us to focus on our audience and 'front of house' business. And, a VERY special 'thank you' to actress, Mary Zentmyer. She deservedly got a long, loud and sustained 'Standing-O' at the end of the show. She was more than gracious, especially after the show during the 'meet and greet'. She took time to talk and pose for pictures with almost the entire audience.
Now that the precedent has been set, I'm sure we will be bring 'Sister' back in the not too distant future."
Dale Marach, Celebration Players, Celebration, FL
"Sister was superb! I believe that she had the audience convinced that she was a real life nun. Catholic or Non-Catholic enjoyed two plus hours of good wholesome laughter and fun. It was a great event for Davenport Rotary and I had people thanking me for bringing the play to Davenport. Many of our guests had seen it before, one gentleman said this was the thirteenth time he had seen it."
