QUOTES & REVIEWS

from the Columbus Dispatch, August 15, 1995:  “It was a first-class, well-directed production” said David Cryer (Monsieur Firmin, Phantom of the Opera), said of Columbus Junior Theatre’s Snoopy.

“ In the wrong hands, How to Eat Like a Child could easily seem precious, but Suzanne Accetta’s direction brings out the sparkle in it.  She paces the action well so it’s lively without being frenetic” The show’s gleeful energy makes it fun for all those, young and old, who can recognize themselves in it.” by  Margaret Quamme, The Columbus Dispatch

“Under the smooth direction of Suzanne Accetta, the 75-minute one act downplays the potential drama and pathos in the story of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and plays up the comedy and spectacle. The production is suitable for all ages.  While the Webber-Rice material can be condescending and smirky, this production treats it with good humor that diffuses and possible objections.” by  Margaret Quamme, The Columbus Dispatch, 2002

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is pleasantly cast and brimming with energy.  Suzanne Accetta corrals a large cast of children and adults.  She keeps things moving and provides plenty of surprises and creative touches.”  by Nancy Gilson, The Columbus Dispatch 2000

“Suzanne Accetta manages the large cast of  The Sound of Music gracefully. She respects her material and the cast works well together. The opening scene is dramatic, with the nuns bearing candles pace down the theatre aisles to the stage. This is an effective production of a classic piece of musical theatre.  Children should enjoy the lively pace and memorable scenes.” by  Margaret Quamme, The Columbus Dispatch,  2003

Under Suzanne Accetta's direction, the old story of Peter Pan's meeting with Wendy and her brothers, their flight to Neverland and their battle with Captain Hook unfolds at a cozily brisk pace. the play invites the audience into a playful game of make-believe.  Margaret Quamme, The Columbus Dispatch
