Review Quotes

Worcester Magazine – 11/10/2017

“Child actors who more than held their own with – and in some cases surpassed – their adult counterparts…The standouts were Tristan Klaphake and Edward Turner, who took turns playing Ralphie; Evan Christy, playing Ralphie’s younger brother, Randy…and young Wyatt Oswald as a tap-dancing mobster were almost worth the price of admission alone.”
