"It was the most beautiful production I have seen. So well done and heartfelt and delivered by Greta in such a way that I will forever remember it in my heart. I cried so much as it was a gentle reflection of my own life story. Greta is truly a storyteller and consummate artist…a jewel and a gem! So glad I got to experience this great work!" – Laverne

"Handprints was fabulous, mesmerizing, emotional, very entertaining. I was transfixed from beginning to end. Thank you for the gift of this beautiful production." – Leone

"Outstanding performance! I love how the use of puppets were woven into the play. She had a beautiful voice. The play gave an amazing connection from beginning to end. I really enjoyed this!" – Meg

"Thank you!! It was wonderful and so appreciated. We did live stream and live in Grand Marais, MN and are so grateful that you provide this opportunity." – Hillary

"We thought it was brilliant. The story was compelling and Greta's songs were beautiful. The production values were excellent - I hope people all over the country see this. Many thanks for this beautiful work." – Margaret

"I watched HANDPRINTS, stricken every minute by the miraculous work of both actors as they became different people, and themselves different at many stages of life. I thank you for this unbelievably powerful event." – Shelby

"Handprints is one of the most touching, enchanting, and engrossing theatrical productions I have ever experienced (and I am a theater buff and have been to countless plays in New York, locally and across the country). Greta Oglesby is a national treasure!" – Elaine

"We experienced Handprints today as a matinee and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you for bringing theater to us in this way, in this time and in all times. I look forward to more opportunities to be in your audience from home." – Amy

"This was remarkable. During the pandemic I have watched some theater and because of limitations if just was not something I could enjoy. It would have been better in the theater. This production brought everything to the viewer. I was right there. It had power, humor, grief and so much more. I would love to have more theater in the home like this. Congrats to all for making this possible." – Peg
