"UMGASS takes Pirates seriously, which is to say, not seriously at all, delivering a delightful production, loaded with talent and laughs, that stays true to the original work without casting it in amber."

"The whole production is just a must for Gilbert & Sullivan fans or the operetta-curious"


"Comic Opera Guild's little touring Barber of Seville shows again what a perennial gem this opera is.  The cast soars to the heights that their talented voices can take them, but still can plumb the depths of slap stick and mugging, with the audience happily egging them on."

"A must see before these singers move on to bigger companies."
