Venue Testimonials

"May I thank you all for the wonderful show you gave at our AGM Banquet, it really made the evening for us all and without doubt one of the best events we have ever had. The professionalism of the cast was second to none, blending in well with our evening meal with scenes between courses and interviews in order to establish the truth. Thank you to all the actors for a truly wonderful show."

"This is the second time we’ve hired the After Dark Team to perform at our hotel. 

All of the actors were fantastic, hilarious and extremely talented. Everyone on check out couldn’t speak highly enough of the After Dark team, so much so everyone was asking me ‘when is the next one?!’

We can’t wait to see you all again. Thank you for a fantastic night"

Kero Travel

"From the minute the cast start performing, their performance is so professional, as is their interaction with the audience.

If you get chance it is a MUST that you see one of their productions. It's three hours of pure magic. We have been fortunate enough to present three of their productions, and can't wait for the 4th later on this year."

"Just to say that the feedback from the Members is that they absolutely love the professionalism and way

That your actors deliver the various themed nights that you have done for us – it is always a sell out as soon as the Sheet goes up – I think this years will be the 3rd one, so that alone is a testimony to the success

Of what you guys do."
