Went to see Thoroughly Modern Millie with this group last summer - it was excellent! The show was visually stunning, the singing and dancing was incredible. Every element of this show was wonderful. The scenery and costumes were beautiful and creative, the orchestra was excellent and extremely professional, the choreography and the dancers were just marvelous - we didn't want the dancing to end! We can not wait to see more shows with this theatre group! If you want to see a professional, exciting evening of theatre, support this group! You won't find a better show around!

We have seen some of the actors from this company in the past performances. It was exciting when they decided to form their own company. We attended their initial performance last summer and found it completely professional and extrmely well done. The actors were great and the sets,etc supported the efforts of the actors.

The Exit 82 Theater group was conceived and brought to the Toms River Community last year. The principals spent long hours researching how best to achieve their goals. We do not live in Tom’s River, but support the endeavors of this young and talented group. We thoroughly enjoyed their production last summer and look forward to seeing their next creative work. We support this group as they strive to raise money for their work, and as they succeed in their goals to provide Toms River and NJ with quality entertainment. Their work has so many benefits; to the community, to the folks who participate in their theater company, and to each of us as we applaud the work of these ambitious, hard working young entrepreneurs. If you are looking to invest in honest, talented and dedicated people in the field of arts, stop now and write out your check to Exit 82!

Congratulations to EXIT 82 for an outstanding debut season! I could not believe what 4 young, ambitious people were able to create when they began with virtually no budget. Everything from the scenery and lighting to the acting, dancing and singing was top notch! Everyone in the audience from young to old was caught up in the magic. Kudos to the company for providing sign language interpreters for one of their performances as well. I wish them good luck and continued success.

It was an absolute privilege to be a member of Exit 82's inaugural season as a cast member in "On the Town." Everyone involved with the production was incredibly gifted, driven, and completely professional. The bonds I was able to form with fellow cast members, production staff members, and others involved with the company will not be forgotten anytime soon. While, sadly, the arts are frequently overlooked in the Toms River area, Exit 82 provides an opportunity for aspiring and seasoned performers to share their gifts and love of the theatre with the community. I look forward to the growth and development of this organization and highly anticipate becoming involved with this upcoming summer's production of "Thoroughly Modern Millie."

I saw Exit 82's inaugural performance of "On The Town" last season. It was great. You'd think the kick-off performance of any new theater company would have exhibited a few glitches, but if there were any, I didn't notice. In fact, I found out weeks after closing that the pianist who was supposed to work the show and who had rehearsed with the group sprained his wrist three days before opening night and couldn't do the gig. The music director and one of the performers played instead, and it was flawless, as far as I could tell. The pit was tight as a drum, and the vocalists were outstanding, and their acting was great, too. I hear that "Millie" is going to be at Toms River High School North, which has a nice auditorium. I really look forward to it, and I'll be telling all my theater friends and acquaintances about it.

Exit 82 is a fantastic organization who successfully started a community theater in the Toms River area. They were professional, organized and a great deal of fun to work with making the community theater experience what it should be. I loved working with them and hope to do so again in the coming season. I have done community and paid theater and can easily say they are off to a great start. Would like to see them continue the musicals with a variety to appeal to all ages.

This was my first community theatre experience. Since it was in my home town, I wanted to be a part of it and see what it offered. The experience was great! I hope to keep in touch and support this company in the future. :-)

As a volunteer, donor and avid lover of all the arts, I applaud the wonderful job Exit 82 Theatre Company did in their production of "On the Town". I brought my entire family and extended family to see the show and it was a heart-warming experience for all! What better way to celebrate Toms River and experience the talent it grows then to support such a wonderful group. I am so looking forward to helping in the 2010 production of "Thoroughly Modern Millie".

I had a wonderful experience with Exit 82. For such a populated area, arts exposure in Ocean County is minimal, and the majority of youth have never experienced live theatre. Exit 82 brings of high-quality entertainment that can be enjoyed by all. The entire production staff is young and innovative, and they truly know what is necessary to put on a professional production. Perhaps the most exciting aspect of this company is its universality. All ages are encouraged to audition, and this past year's production of "On the Town" featured high school students as well as adults; both seasoned performing veterans and newcomers to the stage. Everyone is encouraged to get involved, from directors, to stagehands to costume designers - all of the magic comes off flawlessly through the dedication of the volunteers.

Being a part of Exit 82 last year was the highlight of my summer. I was given the opportunity to work with the most talented, fun, young group of people imaginable. Also, "On The Town" was the epitome of a great, quality community theatre production. I am very excited to spend many more summers with Exit 82 and wish them nothing more than the greatest success.
