On opening night I had the privilege of going to the Alligator Community Theater’s performance of “Dearly Departed.” The acting seemingly spanned all experience levels, but everyone filled their character very nicely. The content of the play was very entertaining, and quite often had the whole crowd laughing out loud. Be advised though, I should note that some kind of parental advisory should be included. I give the performance two thumbs up!
Overall I was pleased with my choice of entertainment on the evening! I would certainly recommend your attendance as it would benefit ACT and leave you laughing for the duration of the performance!
The remaining showtimes are as follows:
Friday, May 10th- 7:00pm
Saturday, May 11th- 1:30 & 7:00 pm
