Joining the cast on stage is Soprano Jennifer Lindshield, who adds an operatic tone to Tal Bashai’s musical arrangements. While this seems like a peculiar choice, the genre is integrated thoughtfully and creatively with the rest of the show. Lindshield's "Splish Splash" re-imagining is particularly entertaining to watch and hear, as is Nicole Ratjen commendable clowning ability in warming up the audience and providing laughs during the very smooth transitions.
