"The comic numbers come off the best.... Kander and Ebb's ill-fated "The Act" provides two silly songs, both delivered with an appealing light touch. Benjamin Walton croons an ode to the maker of packaged desserts in "Sara Lee." - Matt Palm, Orlando Sentinel  


"The show was full of standout performances. Benjamin Walton excelled with a marvelously funny performance of “Sara Lee” and an appropriately sheepish 'Mr. Cellophane,'" - Alex Storer, Central Florida Future


"Overall, UCF's production of OKLAHOMA! was an outstanding night of theatre from amazing students who truly came together to make something great..."  - Libby Champion, Broadway World Orlando



"The student performers were solid... the production, though, didn't feel like it was about individual achievement; instead, it was an enjoyable display of what can happen when so many artists work together." - Matthew J. Palm, Orlando Sentinel


*as a composer/writer*

"Speaking of the music, Walton and Brooks have done a good job of not only picking a variety of styles of music to fit into this 75-minute musical, but they did so while creating music that fit well into the Golden Girls universe. There was one point where I thought to myself, this is what a musical episode of The Golden Girls would have sounded like." - Geoffrey Lawrence, Broadway World Orlando
