What People Say
“The witty commentary…Maggie Bickerstaff as Little Sally kept the audience engaged as [she] consistently broke the fourth wall. The bantering of [Lockstock] and Bickerstaff definitely was one of the show’s highlights.”-GVSU Lanthorn on Urinetown
“She is just spot-on for this role…absolutely perfect.”-Grosse Pointe Patch on The Diary of Anne Frank
“Bickerstaff does a great portrayal of the Alice in Wonderland character, casually speaking of her past relations while keeping her innocent demeanor intact.”-GVSU Lanthorn on Sex and the Supernatural
