What People Are Saying


Reboot Theatre Company has created one of the most forward-thinking and respectful environments for artists of all backgrounds to explore and challenge their creativity in exciting, non-traditional outlets.

Jake Atwood
Actor, Little Shop of Horrors

"[Reboot] casts truly talented artists into roles that they otherwise would not receive because they don’t look a certain way and I wish more production companies in the area would follow that model: cast the person whose raw talent would do the role justice no matter their skin color, size, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, etc."

Cammi Smith
Actor, Sweeney Todd

"This glorious non-traditional, cross-gender, genderqueer cast is killing it. In fact, let's just remove that qualification right here and now. They're not killing it for a specific type of cast, they're just killing it."

Jay Irwin

"You know that you are part of something special. You know that you are included. You know that you are seen for who you are and loved for it. Reboot challenges the familiar, filtering it through the lens of the unknown and the impossible."

Jessica Robins
Actor, 1776, Sweeney Todd

"So much heart, talent, and honesty."

Sophia Franzella
Co-founder, Filament

"Working with Reboot twice has been a great experience, especially as someone who has been working through transition. I feel as though I was able to be seen and cast exactly for who I am. It has been refreshing and has lead me to find my purpose and direction again in the world of performance. To be able to tell stories without traditional barriers opens up so much more imagination of what our world could be."

Vincent Milay
Actor, Little Shop of Horrors, Sweeney Todd

"The casting choices gave excellent actors a crack at killer roles that would normally be denied them." "Impressive." "Dazzling." "High-octane wit."

The Stranger

"As both an artist and an audience member, I know that when Reboot puts on a production, it is going to be chock-full of talented people doing incredible work. As a queer woman of color, Reboot's accomplishments of bringing diversity and representation to the stage in new and exciting ways thrills me. Watching the company grow from 1776 through Sweeney Todd has been an exciting journey, and I look forward to what's in store for the next season and beyond!"

Mahealani Smith
Supporter, Actor, 1776
Kylee Gano Headshot

"Reboot creates the opportunity for Actors to try new types that they wouldn't necessarily be cast for anywhere else. Because of this, I've been cast as the comedic relief in two of their shows. Both experiences lead me to discover that I'm not an ingenue at all and that my true self is the funny henchman. I can't thank Reboot enough for allowing me to work with their bad ass, trailblazing company."

Kylee Gano
Actor, 1776, Fly By Night, Sweeney Todd

"Reboot knows that talent comes in all forms, colors, shapes, sizes, genders and abilities. They know it, and they celebrate it. Reboot gives folx an opportunity to show what they can DO, regardless of who they ARE. That celebration, often wrapped in non-traditional packaging, challenges the audience to question harmful norms we’ve been collectively fed as a society."

Mandy Rose Nichols
Actor, 1776, Fly By Night, Sweeney Todd
