“Overall Emily's Song is a fine production. Director Chet Holmes has assembled a fine company of actors to tell this bittersweet about love, lost and the sustaining power of music.”

—LA Splash, Keisha7


"I took my wife and my two younger children with me last night to see "Emily's Song. I honestly went at first to get the bonus offered by Chet Holmes to his database, but the entire production from pre-show to the end was fabulous!


The pre-show was great. Amanda is a true light in this world. She is a huge talent and a wonderful soul. As the father of three daughters myself, I can tell you I see all kinds, good and bad. She is a real shining star.


The play, production, songs and actors were all terrific. Funny, well written, well acted, great performances all around. Well done Chet . . . Bravo!"
