Check out the REVIEWS!

"-There are lots of sharp one-liners and abundant physical comedy". "Bassett's aces in this fun and fast-moving fracas are Drake and Knickerbocker. On a stage full of funny people, their empathetic buffoonery stands out as the most complete work in the show. Not to mention their pipes" Kitsap Sun

"Michael Drake plays Max and plays him superbly. Under his Rick Moranis-like exterior soars the voice of the operatic tenor."
"In the face of larger and more well-endowed South Sound theaters, Paradise never fails to entertain. It's the Little Theater That Can, and it does with "Lend Me a Tenor.”
"It is just one more reason to support Paradise and the ACT LOCAL capital campaign that will sustain Gig Harbor community theater for many years to come."
