Amazing big show with big talent set in mythical 1930s NYC makes you easily forget you are in the middle of Perth Co. Ontario. You don’t have to drive far for this Broadway calibre experience. Nicely nicely done.

This was the best production of Guys and Dolls I have ever seen, from the choreography to the singing, costuming et al. Staged in a beautiful theatre with no bad sight lines. Highly recommended!!!

Went to see Guys and Dolls this week. It is fantastic. The open stage makes the audience part of the music and dancing that cannot be found in a traditional theatre. The singing and dancing were excellent.

The plays and activities are superb- pre-stage, on-stage, and behind-stage. Don't miss any available lecture or tour, especially...More

I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation of Guys and Dolls in the Festival Theatre. The songs brought back memories and the unique presentation on this stage was all new again.
