"this classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical is receiving a virtually flawless production at Hale Centre Theatre in Gilbert.  As Maria, Brandi Bigley is perfectly expressive in showing the many layers of Maria, both comedic and dramatic. And her voice soars through some of the best known songs. Director D. Scott Withers doesn't make one false step... First rate, joyous and emotional, with an excellent cast, superb direction, rich and abundant choreography, and creative touches. It is one of the best productions I've seen of one of the best loved musicals of all time." - Gil Benbrook, Talkin' Broadway

"Brandi Bigley's heartwarming portrayal of Maria in Hale Center Theatre's polished production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music is laced with nuance ~ and a rich voice!   Then, there is [energetic round of applause, please!] the endearing and remarkable septet of young actors who portray the von Trapp children. They take to the stage in song and movement as if they were born in it."  - Herbert Paine, BroadwayWorld.com
