I have attended and acted in community theater productions in the Chicago area for many years. Your recent mounting of "12 Angry Men" was one of the best community theater productions I have ever seen. The acting, direction and production design were uniformly excellent. Thank you for an exciting and thought-provoking evening of theater.

My husband and I live in Batavia IL, quite far from Lake Forest. We have been to a few performances, that have all been very high in quality, and greatly exceeded expectations. My only "Pirates of Penzance" and "Joseph" experiences have been with this theater, and I don't feel I need to see them again anywhere else. Professional shows, very well done. It is worth the drive for us to see the shows at Centerstage.
