Delta Nu Attitude: "Legally Blonde: The Musical," at the Prospect Park Auditorium through July 20

Augumn Loose, Liv Lyman, Lauren VanSpeybroeck, and Becca Johnson in Legally Blonde: The MusicalLegally Blonde: The Musical is, of course, based on the 2001 hit starring Reese Witherspoon, a movie that led to a rather woebegone sequel in 2003’s Legally Blonde: Red, White, & Blonde. Yet while watching the original film’s stage version on Thursday, I felt that Red, White, & Blonde also would’ve been a fitting title for Quad City Music Guild’s terrifically peppy new presentation, considering that this solo-star-driven show came off, instead, as pretty wonderfully democratic.

Sarah Lounsberry in Peter PanQuad City Music Guild’s Thursday-night preview performance of Peter Pan – which, it should be stressed, was still technically a rehearsal – clocked in at roughly an hour and 55 minutes, making director Beth Marsoun’s presentation at least a half-hour shorter than any of the four other Peter Pans I’ve thus far seen on stage. This proved, at alternating times, to be both a very good thing and a rather unfortunate thing. But let’s start with the good.

Pros at Cons: "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels," at the Prospect Park Auditorium through July 15

Sheri Olson, J. Adam Lounsberry, Ben Holmes, Sara Wegener, Paul Workman, and Jamie Bauschka in Dirty Rotten ScoundrelsThere’s nothing rotten about Quad City Music Guild’s current production of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels; Thursday’s preview performance was delightfully wicked from beginning to end. There is, however, plenty that’s dirty in this musical stage adaptation of the 1988 film, which starred Michael Caine and Steve Martin. The raunchy humor is sharp and smart, including the plethora of usually groan-worthy double entendres, and it's all delivered remarkably well by director Greg Bouljon’s cast.

Melissa Flowers, Sheri Brown, and James Pepper in CinderellaThere are so many delightful distractions in Quad City Music Guild’s Cinderella that, during Thursday night’s preview performance, I kept getting lost in the scenery. And then the costumes. And then the vocals. And then the scenery... .

"Jack" Be Nimble, "Jack" Be Quick: "Jack Frost Saves Christmas," at the Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse through December 26

Don Denton, Bret Churchill, and Laura Miller in Jack Frost Saves ChristmasThe Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse’s Jack Frost Saves Christmas is the most adorable children’s play I’ve ever seen. Okay, it’s also the only children’s play I’ve seen since... well, since I was a child. Still, it brought out the kid in me as I danced and sang along – at the appropriate, invited times, of course – and I wasn’t alone; the children in attendance at Saturday’s performance, including the two I brought along with me, laughed and danced and shouted exclamations of delight at the play’s proceedings.
