2 Male 1 Female

Three ragtag actors trying to stage a musical version of The Count of Monte Cristo despite limited sets, funds and costumes provide music hall tomfoolery at its best

"Crammed with ridiculous dialogue, absurd situations and a virtual midway of musical styles.... The audience booed, hissed and applauded happily' ~ Calgary Herald, Canada

"The silliness is endearing ... Corny antics and slapstick characterizations ... in a non stop comic romp which is at times hysterically funny.... No opportunity for humor has been overlooked ... You're in for a night peppered with spontaneous applause and raucous laughter" ~ Calgary Sunday Sun
