Media

“Scrooge Spoof hits bulls-eye. Scrooge-The Female Version has been resurrected for a third season at Glenmore Dinner Theatre for a very good reason. Caroline Russell-King’s version of the Dickens classic is sharp-witted, deliciously cynical and outrageously silly.”
– Lin Connery, Calgary Herald
“Ms Scrooge packed ‘em in. When the final curtain came down on Scrooge the Female Version the Glenmore said goodbye to its most successful show in the company’s seven year history. Scrooge hands out laughs. Unsophisticated but spirited romp which gives the funny bone a genuine working over 3 ½ stars.”
– Louis B. Hobson, Calgary Sun
“Scrooge a big hit… Well timed acting and a witty script made Scrooge the Female version, which played last night last night a satisfying serving of dinner theatre… a zany original quality throughout, which was well received by last night audience.” 
– Eve Edmonds, Medicine Hat News
