"Modern theatre is often about The Now or even about The Next, but Retro Productions understands the importance of remembering our recent history. The significance of reflection is always poignantly observed in their revivals."

"Retro productions has an incredible dedication to preserving the details of the era for any given production” ~ Elise Rovinsky
"Retro Productions is an awesome organization that supports its members' artistic efforts with high production standards and meaningful project choices." ~ Rebecca Cunningham
"Retro Productions is awesome because it gives actors, designers, directors, and stage managers the experience of working on a production in another time. It also allows the audience to experience life during a time they may not have lived through. Not only are they enjoying the show, but they are learning about the music, the decor, the clothing, the slang, and the cultural feelings of that precise era through the production." ~ Kathryn Squitieri
"Retro is at it's best when we all work together as a team - and this company does. We may not do a lot of shows (certainly there are companies who do more), but we do consistently great work that not just relies on, but benefits from the company members all coming together and bringing their individual talents to the end goal."
~ Heather Cunningham
