"When I auditioned for Peter Pan way back in 2008, I had no idea how much this company and community would mean to me. Variety Plus is Community Theater at its finest.
All inclusive, fun and the most wonderful people you could ever work with. Whether you're new to acting or an old hat, Variety Plus shows are tremendously fun and rewarding to be a part of. Bob and Angela are creative power houses and are absolutely fitted in temperament and talent to this joyous company. The camaraderie I've enjoyed with these wonderful people has brought me back year after year. I have made long lasting friendships here. I have done a good amount of theater and I can say
that there is nothing else quite like the joy of being involved in a Variety Plus show. And in case you were wondering... In my first show in 2008, they cast me in my dream role as Captain Hook!" .... Jeremy January
"Bob an Angela create amazing art that is accessible by all whether on stage or in the audience.
All are welcome to audition and
all are cast. They are professionals with huge imagination, talent and heart.".....
"This was my first participation in a real stage production, and I have loved it and learned so much from it. It has given me a whole new respect for what goes into creating theater on a stage, and this respect extends very much to the two of you.
I have the greatest admiration for the secure competence and calm good humor with which you took an enormous and very diverse cast and formed us into a working company able to create a credible and thoroughly entertaining show.
Thank you again for all your work
"There are times when you forget why you do theater. You forget that
it is not for the money or fame,
or the short hours. You forget that
it creates and nurtures a community, that it brings people together,
that it gives people reason,
hope, joy and above all the love of life.
Angela and Bob have created an amazing program that not only brings multi generational people together, but it brings everyone, from Special needs kids,
to people with needs up.
It is wonderful to see!
Thank you for your work, your love of theater, and the amazing gift you give your community every year.
I thank you personally for reminding me why we do theater and why
it has to be a part of us.
I wish you two all the best
in the future!! ...."
