We enjoyed the show, but did wonder at times if the portrayal of the family bordered on mockery. The guests we brought along, who had lived through that era were very upset and felt like it was mocking a time which was very meaningful in their own spiritual formation.

I think it is a fine line to walk when satirizing anything that is sacred to another. I feel like theatre does often rattle my chains, and I acknowledge that it is important to do that sometimes. Yet, the line between satire and mocking is a fine one.

From the moment you come into the theater you feel welcomed into the show. Great acting by all – w songs and laughter and clapping to fill the room. Story telling of a June bug was the highlight – could not stop laughing. Did I mention the cast are part of the band as well. Excellent – you must see this show. Congrats to all.

We thoroughly enjoyed our night at the theatre for this production. It was a fun, feel good presentation and well worth being a part of the audience and the theatre.

This was an absolutely delightful trip back to my early childhood, an honest and warm-hearted look at a simpler and less inhibited time. At first I wondered if it was mocking those simple people, but then I decided it was an ingenuous portrayal of some unsophisticated saints. The performances were brilliant and the audience was swept up in the joyful spirit of the story.

I absolutely loved the music and acting very well done! The story although excellent was a little short on inspirational content. Still I really enjoyed the characters and loved the music. Totally worth the drive from Abbotsford !

I liked the play.
I music and actors were good.
One complaint is that it started sooo late.
Audiences should be told why the delay.

We loved the lively “oldtime-gospel” music, the actors’ energy, the infectious laughter, and the earnest “straight-and-narrow” stories (testimonies!) of the various characters, as well as the sometimes lighthearted dialogue / participation between performers and audience.

We thoroughly enjoyed the evening of foot tapping/stomping music and the upbeat Christian message.

My friend lois and I loved every minute of this show.
It was very uplifting and delightful – the actors all very gifted and well cast.

I was wondering if women could have such a prominent role in worship in 1938 – good for them for taking it on!

I loved this musical theatre which was so uplifting, joyous not to mention seeing and hearing a very talented cast displaying their excellent abilities with so many instruments. Thank you for making it available to us.

I laughed from beginning to end and tapped my toes from beginning to end. I enjoyed myself from beginning to end despite not being able to understand all the dialogue due to the southern inflections and talking too fast at times and a hearing deficit. While Director Sarah Rodgers gave herself a dumbed down role, she lit it up and really stole the show with her bright energetic style and subtle but so effective movements and facial changes – a brilliant performance.
I loved the gentle poking of fun at folks… after all if we cannot laugh at ourselves, we take ourselves too seriously. I thought the sincere faith and desire to serve Jesus came through as did the over the top theatrics of sincerity and holy performance it seems is common in the south.

My error… sorry. Sarah Rodgers directed this play brilliantly but did not steal the show. Actually it was Kaitlin Williams who stole the show as June.
