‘Big River’ was truly amazing

To the Editor:

My husband and I have been season ticket holders (to Center Stage Theatre) for eight years. After every show, we say “that this was the best show ever.” When we tell you that the performance of “Big River” this Friday evening was truly amazing, it really was the best ever! It was so great one would think you were on Broadway in New York City. We were truly brought to tears, laughter and hope.

You felt like you were traveling down the Mississippi River with Huck and Jim! The talent, music, cast, crew and costume design was amazing. Thank you Fran and Gary Scarpa for all the wonderful shows over the years — but you out-did yourself on the Big River. You two are incredible people. To have Center Stage in Shelton, so close to home, is truly a blessing. Keep up the good work. If you have not been to this little theater, you don’t know what you are missing. Thank you so very much.
