“…Eliza Martin as the Ghost of Christmas Past has a costume that is worth the price of admission on its own and drew gasps from the audience when she unveiled it…” – The Morning Call

“The set is minimal and most of it folds out of a giant trunk.  Music is provided delightfully by handbells performed by the cast…” -The Morning Call
