The Dream on Royal Street (Summer 2017)

"Totally stealing the show, the three young performers are slapstick enthusiasts...The best reason to see this show is the [AKT] kids. They are the enchantment in this version of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.- Paul Myrvold's Theatre Notes  

"AKT Advanced Repertory...brought the high energy needed for a farcical musical comedy. Indeed they often provided the biggest laughs...All the players and crew deserve high marks for making this goofy night of fun come back to life." - Colorado Boulevard

Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates (Workshop, January 2017)

"This year's production is thus a revelation. With...a director who understands how to make the piece flow...this year's 'Little House' proves charming and sweet, but organically so.- Stage Struck  

"Skillfully directed by Alison Eliel Kalmus...'A Little House Christmas' will light the way!" - Broadway World

A Christmas Memory (Winter 2015)


"I love A Christmas Memory. This is the second time I have seen the musical… it is imaginative and has its magical moments. I must say, I enjoyed Sierra Madre's production the most for its intimacy, warmth and marvelous cast. Go, see for yourselves, as there is much to praise." - Broadway World


"Head and shoulders above most so-called holiday musicals." - Stage Raw


"On this intimate stage with the orchestra in full view behind the actors, the flavor of the original story is well preserved by Alison Eliel Kalmus' fine direction." - Don Grigware
