“An excellent show. The show last night was really excellent and helped to make me feel less in the shadows with my non-belief. It was inspiring to be in a theatre full of people who really seemed to connect with the concepts! I thought the video sketches were hilarious and really well done, but the majority of praise (pun intended) goes to Thea. She reminded me of Gilda Radner at times!”

That was quite clever, hilarious, and I WANT ONE!”
—Annette Pretorius, art center director
