School House Rock:
New show by ReAct is a nostalgic journey back to childhood
Being "community theater," the show is not quite polished, and at times, it is difficult to hear. The stage is rather minimalist and the costume changes are less than elaborate. But having said that, the individual performances are sharp. And I can't imagine one of the bigger theatres even considering a show such as this, or being able to deliver it such a fun format. Kudos to all the cast, not one can be criticized. More importantly, the cast of multi-ethnic performers seems to truly enjoy themselves. This makes a world of difference. Although I don't want to single anyone out, Candice Wickson and Amy Jo Diebold are especially superb.
