The professionalism of the organization cannot be overstated. The foundation of Gilbert and Sullivan operettas remains, but each year sees expansion of the repertoire.

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.

The Freedlander theater is small, so the seats are all pretty good. Just saw Anything Goes, which was superb. always a pleasure to come here. Free parking close by.The orchestra is wonderful, too. Nothing like a real live orchestra providing the music for a play!
