The Sun Chronicle recently reviewed our show, Jesus Christ Superstar in, "Norton Singers bring 'Superstar' into modern times"

Jesus Christ Superstar

As Judas, Mischley brings an intensity well known to theater audiences in this area. Coming off a recent performance as McMurphy in "Cuckoo's Nest" at MMAS, he belts out the title song of "Superstar" with enthusiasm, and captures the conflicted feelings his character had for Jesus.

Normand brings an eloquence to the role Mary Magdalen. In her performance of "Everything's Alright," as she brings comfort to Jesus and tries to comfort Judas, it's easy to view Mary as an apostle to the apostles, as she is often referred to by scholars.

The Sun Chronicle recently reviewed our show, Into The Woods in, "Stage review: Do go 'Into the Woods' at Wheaton"

Into the Woods 2015-4

Christopher Starr plays the role of Jack and demonstrates talent equal to his older cast mates. He memorably joins Sam Bianco and Valerie Cabral, who play the Baker and Wife, in "I Guess This Is Goodbye/Maybe They're Magic," and sings beautifully in "Giants in the Sky."

Act II offers some of best moments in song and performance as the main characters come together to battle a giant. Among the memorable songs are "Witch's Lament" and "Last Midnight," which Sammons belts out with dramatic flair. Cabral is both repentant and lusty as she sings "Moments in the Woods" after the dalliance with the Prince.

The Sun Chronicle recently reviewed our show, Fiddler on the Roof in, "Review: Norton Singers' 'Fiddler' hits all the right notes"

Mitchell finds gold in the performance of David Giagrando as Tevye. Giagrando is perfectly cast in a role that requires self-deprecation, humility, strength, comedy and charm. Tevye is the key to a successful production of this musical and Giagrando is a master key in his line delivery, facial expressions, singing voice and stage command. This man will charm all who see this production, as any good Tevye should.

Judith's blocking is marvelous as she creates picture postcards moments as is her eliciting spectacular performances from this cast. Anthony conducts a magnificent fourteen piece orchestra and they enhance the harmonic blend voices of the cast in their solos, duets, trios and quartets.
