Beauty and the Beast

"...features a surreal performance by Peyton Royal as a carpet capable of seemingly physically impossible feats."

- Norm Gross, PMP Network

- Rachel Rome, Planet North Shore

- Susan Whitney, Desert Morning News

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

"This show could not maintain its rapid pace without 'the Proteans' - Venny Carranza, Brant Michaels and Peyton Royal - who play dozens of roles, from giggling eunuchs of the house of Senex, to the warriors who accompany Miles Gloriousus, and everything in between. They are leaping, tumbling, rolling, running bundles of energy, and masters of physical comedy. They're brilliant and hilarious."
- Bev Sykes, Enterprise Dramam Critic
"Nimbly playing numerous supporting characters are the versatile Proteans -- Venny Carranza, Brant Michaels, and Peyton Royal."
- Marcus Crowder, The Sacramento Bee
"And the 'proteans,' three guys who played interchangeable roles without skipping a beat, were delightfully captured by Venny Carranza, Brant Michaels, and Peyton Royal."
- E. Haig, The Sacramento Gazette
"...the acrobatics of the Proteans (Venny Carranza, Brant Michaels, Peyton Royal) were especially impressive."
- Sondra Morishima, Sacramento Stage & Theatre

The Wizard of Oz
