A Lot of Good Theatre People
Mar. 2020
I attended A Few Good Men on March 12 and was so glad to have done so, especially in view of the close down of all theatre venues since then due to Covid19. It was an exceptionally good performance, one I had been wondering about since I had seen the Feb 1 screening, with all of its different settings. The staging was effective and provided a real sense of the different places, with subtle rearranging of the minimal set pieces. The actors were spectacular, and made it seem we were really in a court, or wherever the action was taking place. The emotion of the ending was as effective as the result produced by the film. All in all, a wonderful afternoon of very worthwhile theatre. On the way home my friend and I discussed the merits of this piece of theatre, and decided that A Few Good Men, or Enemy of the People, or A Man for All Seasons should be required study for young people, to gives meaningful examples of integrity, and the price we pay in society when we fail to recognize its importance.

A Few Good Men
Mar. 2020
I thought the play was very well done and I thoroughly enjoyed the performance.
It was a reasonable time, approximately three (3) hours long with an intermission.

We had balcony seats, front row. The legroom could have been a bit more, at 5' 6" tall I did alright but my friend at almost 6' was a bit cramped.

Overall, a great show and I love the establishment and will go to other productions there.

Absolutely The Best!!!
Mar. 2020
We have been active supporters for many years and have always enjoyed their productions.

However, A Few Good Men rates as absolutely THE BEST performance we have attended and reset the bar to the maximum. Every aspect of the play exceeded our expectations from the stage management, role assignment and the performance of the individual performers. Every aspect was utterly fantastic.

Congratulations!!!!!!

Anyone reading this must go and enjoy this show.

A great coulpe of hours of entertainment
Mar. 2020
This lovely theater has done it again. The show is a bit longer than the usual presentations and lasts about two and a half hours. The cast delivers a stand out performance. The story is good and takes place in a courtroom mainly populated by military personnel. The set is amazing and the cast includes many minority types, who do an impressive job bringing their characters to life.

A Few Good Men at St Jacobs Country Playhouse
Mar. 2020
Amazing show. Be sure to see it before it's over. Made me want to watch the movie again. However, spoiler, be ready when the Judge uses the gavel in the courtroom. It's like a gun going off. Everyone in the theatre jumped the first time. We were ready for it the next few times.

A few Good Men

This play has amazing collection of very talented actors and obviously a great director and crew. The staging is wonderful and although it is a long play time wise, the time flew by. I would highly recommend this production as great entertainment, and a must-see for play lovers -- if you can get a ticket..

WOW! WOW! WOW! Performance was amazing. We enjoyed the show. The atmosphere and energy was outstanding. I would highly recommend this show Every year we buy season tickets. There hasn’t been a year, where we didn’t enjoyed the performance. If anyone is looking for sum relaxing time, book any show with Drayton Entertainment. You won’t be disappointed. What a nice way to finish our weekend. Thank you again for a fantastic performance. We are looking forward to our next show “Billy Bishop Goes to War” in April.

Best regards,

Fantastic production. Drayton Festival NEVER fails to impress. Jack Nicholson "look out" there's a new guy in town.

Outstanding Performance of the classic ‘A Few Good Men’
Mar. 2020 • Couples
I was held spellbound as this very talented set of actors led us through the very compelling story of right from wrong. A must see show for those who have followed the Guantanamo Bay story over time. The directing and acting is perhaps the highest quality I have seen at DRAYTON Entertainment. My congrat’s to all involved in this epic production.
