WHAT PEOPLE SAY
THE KINCARDINE RECORD
"[The cast is] stellar, as they race across the stage at break-neck speed, and quickly switch from one role to another...Nicola [is] fabulous, portraying everything from villains to a Fox news reporter, a struggling actress, even a cow"
THE KINGSTON WHIG STANDARD
"There were a few performers who stood out for me. I really enjoyed the synchronized comedic hijinks of Nicola Hadjis and Madison Hayes-Crook as Cinderella’s stepsisters, Lucinda and Florinda."
"Stand-outs include...an absolutely hysterical turn by Nicola Hadjis and Madison Hayes-Crook as Cinderella’s (Katie Ryerson-who can really sing) step sisters Lucinda and Florinda. What a hoot."
