Andrew Finnigan, Director’s Notes- Caught In The Net program

“In the Oxford dictionary the definition of a FARCE is: “A comic dramatic work using buffoonery and horseplay and typically including crude characterization and ludicrously improbable situations”. It does not mean to offend or pick on any individuals . It just wants to entertain, and hopefully we can see ourselves in these characters. Thanks to cast, co-producers, and the “other 80 community volunteers” involved in this show as we support  ” live theatre to the heart of Waterdown”.

The Hamilton Spectator- March 2, 2019 Gary Smith- “Hardworking Waterdown Cast….”
