"It was my first time attending a production at the theatre. I just wanted to let you all know how much my husband and I enjoyed The Gift Of The Magi.  We would gladly recommend it to all of our family and friends and would certainly attend another show in the future.  The talent was incredible and the children were a wonderful addition and equally talented.  It certainly equaled any production I would see in Toronto.  Congratulations on a great production!" - H.D

"We really enjoyed The Gift Of The Magi, a wonderful production all around.  I would like to thank the costume folks especially on an outstanding job!  Truly marvelous, given the multiple changes of costume throughout!" - P.A 

"Another outstanding performance!  Really enjoyed the show." - M.B

"WOW! Thank you so much for a wonderful performance today!!! We are in our second year of season tickets. We buy them together with our Grandma and Great Aunt, and always have a great time. The performance this afternoon more than met our expectations. We have watched the theatre grow in such a short time, with great acting and fantastic stage designs. The added screen and moving stage are lovely upgrades and enhance the theatre experience to one you would expect in a larger City like Toronto. The costumes tonight were excellent, we did not expect so many costume changes and the large cast. This was definitely one of your best performances since we started attending the theatre. We look forward to another great production in February." - S.M

"The entire production was amazing - from the staging, the singing, the choir and the acting. I found tonight's interpretation very moving and found the emotions portrayed very genuine. The professionalism demonstrated throughout the performance was your gift to us. I will be recommending this show to all my friends. Thanks and congratulations on your performance." - A.J

"The Gift Of The Magi was outstanding! The acting was first class, the children were beautifully prepared and added quite a wonderful dimension. I think this was the best ever but I am never disappointed by the outstanding productions at T.O. Thank you!" - J.V

"I have been familiar with the story ‘The Gift of the Magi’ since my Grade 5 teacher read it to my class. I was not familiar with ‘A Retrieved Reformation’, so I did not know what to expect from Leslie Arden’s work, which is based on both stories. It turns out she chose well. The common theme of sacrifice for love unites the two stories.  The original songs further heighten the emotion that O. Henry intended to convey. The cast was excellent. Moral of the story: ‘Come see this production’." - K.H

"A very special evening of original music skillfully crafted around two heartwarming stories that expose the meaning of pure love with forgiveness and self-sacrifice.  Leslie Arden’s inspiring songs and wonderful interpretations of O. Henry’s stories was magical. David Nairn’s direction was impeccable, showcasing the amazing talents and voices of an outstanding cast. " - L.H

"It‘s a heartwarming play that will get anyone into the holiday spirit. The cast brings an excellent mix of singing and acting to the stage." - S.D
