"John Peyton Pou's peformance as the Artful Dodger is worth the price of admission. He is gifted," wrote actress and drama teacher Patti Reeves at intermission on opening night for Academy of Children's Theater's production of Oliver!
Reeves continued, in remarks posted on Facebook: "Nate Watson (Fagin) was super, as was Maddison Gilcrease (Nancy). The little boy who played Oliver, Trevor Van Eaton, has a beautiful voice. But John Peyton was magic."
