WHAT THE CRITICS SAID

“The Wick proves itself with a solid, soaring Sound of Music”
William Hirschman- Florida Theatre on Stage

“The inaugural production of The Sound of Music has the feel of a fully-realized no-excuses production because it is, indeed, a polished, three-dimensional work of theater. It bodes well for the future of a crowd-pleasing mainstream theater on the site of the former Caldwell Theatre Company in Boca Raton."

“Sound of Music gets theatre off to an impressive start”
Hap Erstein – Palm Beach Post and Palm Beach Arts Paper

“Well, skeptics will have to eat their words, based on the opening show of The Wick Theatre and Costume Museum, a very credible rendering of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s final collaboration, The Sound of Music. Would that more established troupes could deliver such Broadway fare with so much assurance.”

Nominated for two Carbonell awards for Best Production of a Musical and Best Supporting Actress in a Musical (won by Lourelene Snedeker*).

WHAT THE CRITICS SAID

“Wick’s White Christmas melts the snow bank in your heart”
William Hirschman- Florida Theatre on Stage

“Literally and figuratively, White Christmas is a “forget your troubles, c’mon get happy” production whose finale should melt not just snow but ice-cold hearts.”

There are two words to sum up the Wick's White Christmas – Holiday Extravaganza. With director
Michelle Solomon – Miamiartzine

Stacey Stephens' romantic vision, Wendy Hall's inspired choreography, costumes that rival Radio City, and a talented cast, the show is a gift to South Florida.

THE COMPANY

Phillip Boykin*
Joy Lynn Jacobs*
Shirley Tripp*
Debra Walton*
Reggie Whitehead*


WHAT THE CRITICS SAID

“The Wick Theatre’s irrepressible new production of “Ain’t Misbehavin’ is an eclectic musical tribute to Waller and his Harlem Renaissance compatriots—rightfully captures the offbeat humor, sexual pulse, and naughty camaraderie inherent in Waller’s compositions.” John Thomason – Boca Raton Magazine

“The entire production exuded a visual smoothness and assured polish.” Infectious joy beamed from the welcoming faces of Shirley Tripp, Debra Walton, Joy Lynn Jacobs, local veteran Reggie Whitehead and Phillip Boykin. They all connected solidly with this 1978 Tony-winner that gathered a broad range of Waller’s Tin Pan Alley music presented as if the audience was watching a Cotton Club revue between the wars."

William Hirschman – Florida Theatre on Stage

“Marilynn Wick has struck gold in Boca. From the time she took over the theatre to the opening night of her premier production, The Sound of Music, she has managed the impossible in a mind-boggling four months. With her first season behind her, and a terrific lineup for next season, she and her theatre are a welcome addition to the South Florida theatrical landscape. It is of great importance for a theatre owner to know what their audience wants. Marilynn has done just that. I raise a glass of champagne to her. Congratulations!”

Jeffrey Bruce – Talking Broadway
