BILLY RAY BREWTON certified reviewer July 01, 2019
A scatological ride through a cavalcade of ridiculous, over-the-top, 'salt of the earth' folks trying to 'get one over' on the U.S. government. Filled with laughs, it doesn't have much of a message, but it's a damned fine amount of fun.... full review

I can't say enough great things about this show. The cast is fantastic and 100% buying into the style of the piece, lovingly crafted by director Arlo Sanders.

If you’ve seen any of their previous shows, then you already know you can expect brilliant writing and hilarious acting. Their newest play is no exception! Wholly original and clever, I enjoyed it immensely. This show was Pamela’s dream to make and you can see all the love put into the development. Highly recommend!... full review

Went and saw "Wigfield" at the Fringe Festival previews last night and I am so glad I did! The show made me laugh out loud. I must give props to a wonderful ensemble cast who bring to life some strangely loveable characters. I do not want to give away the story but I will say, if you love a parade you will love this show.... full review

Full writeup at https://cahighways.org/wordpress/?p=15413 I found the production extremely funny and extremely well done. I originally went to see it because we knew someone in the cast from our days subscribing at REP East in Santa Clarita. I left thoroughly entertained.... full review

Wigfield is a perfect escapist comedy during Fringe filled with top-notch performances from skilled sketch comics, an absurdly entertaining story, and an infectious energy that keeps you laughing throughout.... full review
