Audience member comments about this past weekend's performances:
“I went to see this play tonight at our Apopka Community Center. I admit because I had never been there, I was a little skeptical because of the venue, but it was great! The local actors did an amazing job. I highly recommend it. I promise you will not be disappointed.”

“If you have not made it out to a play at the Apopka Community Theatre...You NEED to make it a priority! Tonight we had the privilege to see "Driving Miss Daisy!" What a fabulous performance and I was just so proud of Mark Wright-Ahern! You are SO very talented and I'm honored to call you my friend! Thank you to the AHA group for putting on such a quality performance and looking forward to the next show! They really did an amazing job. It was SO intimate and really allowed you to be transformed into a different place....captured the essence of what a community theatre is.”
- Kelly Uren Baloun
“Opening Night last evening - Apopka's own, Mark Wright-Ahearn starring in his First play here in Hometown. He stars as 'Hoke', Miss Daisy's chauffeur & friend. The scenery & music takes you back to those early decades that changed our nation and the story of an enduring Friendship. I loved the play. Sitting in the audience, you are part of the stage. Come on out to the Community Theatre and enjoy an evening 'Driving Miss Daisy'. Thank each one for sharing their talent & their own time to bring this beautiful play to stage here in Apopka.”
- Commissioner Diane Velazquez

“Storytelling at its finest! The three actors’ performances pull at your heartstrings. There's visual history on the big screen, a music soundtrack (which I secretly sung along to) and a set that transports you to another time and place (loved the coin phone booth)! I highly encourage the community to attend this top notch experience!” – Terri Morrell
