“On SPAMALOT (March 14-18, 2017): "Equal to John [Weetman as King Arthur] was Martin Kelly, who was absolutely brilliant as Patsy. His facial gestures and vocals were spot on and his relationship with King Arthur was beautifully portrayed. He never missed a beat on the coconuts either. Fantastic job, Martin."”

“On ANNIE (November 7-16, 2013): "Martin Kelly has the look and authoritative voice to play a commanding Daddy Warbucks. He also shows a barely hidden tender side as he gradually falls in love with the little girl whose sunny spirit infuses his home. As a bonus, [Keith] O’Connell has restored an extra song written for the Australian production and rarely included in productions of Annie. The song, ‘Why Should I Change a Thing’, is a nice little soliloquy for Warbucks and musical theatre fans will welcome this chance to hear it sung and well sung at that”

“On My Fair Lady (May 10-26, 2012) - "Scarborough Music Theatre performed to a full house and received a well-deserved standing ovation for their phenomenal performance of the beloved musical, My Fair Lady." "This is the perfect show for Scarborough Music Theatre to end their season, and makes for a great family night out at the theatre. ”

“- On My Fair Lady (May 10-26, 2012) - "This show is well-cast and full of fun and entertaining characters such as Eliza's dad, Alfred (Martin Kelly), who is funny and highly entertaining.”

“Amazing...the best version of When You Say Nothing At All I have heard since Alison Krauss”

“On SWEENEY TODD (February 7-23, 2013) - "Macabre takes on a whole new meaning in the delightfully dark story about a man who decides to exact a unique style of revenge in Scarborough Music Theatre’s latest show, Sweeney Todd. A high energy, well-executed and extremely entertaining performance... This production is extremely well-done and boasts an amazing ensemble cast... This show will make you cringe and laugh, and has an ending you won’t soon forget. ”

“- on URINETOWN (August 15-18, 2012) - "Neither cloying nor pretentious, the mood is note-perfect throughout and never feels inconsistent... The ensemble cast is exceptional... Musical Director Tom Kerr, who also leads the house band, has clearly put the cast through its paces, and it pays off with the universally strong singing performances... The laughter shook the floor, the smiles followed people home, and the cast deserved the standing ovation it received at the end. This is semi-professional theatre at its finest, and Urinetown represents an immense success for StageWorks. By the time you read this, you’ll probably have missed the sold-out run, and that’s a pity. But if they keep this up, both the buzz and the ticket sales should carry them to many more seasons of top-notch community theatre. (And they’ll deserve it, too.)”

“- on JOSEPH & THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT (November 3-19 2011) - "It is a show of pure joy, and even if you've seen it before, I dare anyone who sees this production not to be both thoroughly entertained and touched by the performance." " this show is multi-sensory extravaganza that everyone will enjoy."”

“- on JOSEPH & THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT (November 3-19 2011) - "The performance set itself apart from other community theatre productions." "The live orchestra hit all their cues flawlessly, and played with a passion that was only matched by the ardour from the singing of the cast. The impressive harmonies and powerful, yet graceful voices did the production justice." "A solid performance from a great cast and crew."”
