This was great fun for the whole family and very professionally done. Engaging from start to finish, creatively presented, superb acting. This is one you don't want to miss!

Loved this musical! The timing is impeccable, the actors are thoroughly engaging, and the music is catchy. Loved the intimate atmosphere of this delightful theater----it feels as if you are a part of the show! Go see it now---quick---before its too late!
"Surprisingly good for regional theater" Review posted by: mafra01 from Littleton, MA, Apr 06, 2010
I was surprised at the talent and quality of shows available this far from the theatre district. This was a great way to spend the evening without driving into the city, paying to park, and fighting traffic. It's exciting to have decent entertainment available to everyone at an afordable price, and it is something I am proud to support in my community. The theatre is small so plan ahead and show support for the arts in our community!
I enjoyed this show sooo much. The dynamic between the actors was amazing. The comedy was great and I enjoyed the story line. Lovely little theater in Littleton, MA. Thoroughly enjoyed my time.

Rookery Nook: ***Review posted by: DB42 from Ayer, MA, Nov 20, 2009 The Cannon Theater is a small community theater with a wonderful atmosphere. The play was brilliantly directed and the actors and actresses were amazing. I did not know quite what to expect, but I left with a smile saying to the actors, "see you later old boy". It was a wonderful play that my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed.
***Review posted by: LC from Acton, MA, Nov 14, 2009 This was a very enjoyable outing for my family. From my 8 year old niece to my 75 year old father, everyone was soon belly laughing at the foibles and follies. I was especially taken with the characters Mr. Twine and Clyde. Watch for them. I don't attend too many theater productions (one or two a year) but this was great and I'm thinking of seeing it again!
***"A+ Show" Review posted by: Julia from Wellesley, MA, Nov 14, 2009 I attended Rookery Nook the day my kids' report cards came out. This production gets straight A's. Cast plays well together and exceeds expectations.
***"Small theater, big talent. Terrific show." Review posted by: Julie B. from Maynard, MA, Nov 13, 2009 Littleton's Cannon Theatre serves up a sparkling debut performance with "Rookery Nook" directed by David Nanto. Spot-on casting and perfectly choreographed timing deliver laugh after laugh in this smart, witty farce set in 1920's Somerset, England. An impressive show from a mix of young and seasoned actors. Great for a date or for the family (middle school and up).
***"Such fun!" Review posted by: MB from Westford, MA, Nov 13, 2009 Wonderful, witty dialogue and perfectly-timed physical comedy keep the audience in stitches from start to finish. Your sides will be sore from laughing! A very fun performance.
***"'Nook' is devilish good fun!" Review posted by: Aaron E. from Waltham, MA, Nov 09, 2009 Brilliantly cast, delightfully played, this crew do a wonderful job. What stands out are the polished timing and quick, effervescent exchanges between characters -- a must for this quick- witted farce. The Cannon Theatre is a charming, intimate venue, a perfect fit for this genre. The house and stage are close and cozy. With this drama, every seat in the house feels a bit too close for comfort -- just as the director would have it! Whether you're schooled in Oscar Wilde and Ben Travers or spoon-fed by Eric Idle and John Cleese (like me), you'll love this performance. C
***"Hilarious and enjoyable, worth 10X the ticket price" Review posted by: Spencer from Pepperell, MA, Nov 09, 2009 This was the first time I attended a performance at the Cannon Theatre. So I wasn't sure what to expect. The Cannon Theatre is located in an old brick building with plenty of easy parking in the rear. The theatre itself is small and comfortable with a nicely done set and excellent lighting. I was surprised how nice everything looked when the lights popped on for the first time. The play is hilarious--from start to finish. I haven't laughed that hard and that long for a good while--and it keeps getting funnier as the play progresses, which is not easy to do. Classic British comedy, but family friendly. The acting was fantastic with a broad range of very memorable and very convincing characters--especially the timid, hat biting husband. That guy cracks me up! This was a great play. The experience was worth far more than the ticket price.
