After our recent table reading of “The Last Days of Buster Drumwright," we asked our audience to respond to a survey and tell us what they thought about the show and its music.

We were gratified to receive such high marks!

Here are some results from the survey...

The first three questions were based a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being weak and 5 being excellent.

Question #1:  How would you rate the “Drumwright” story?

64% gave the story a 5
36% gave the story a 4
(No 1s, 2s or 3s)

Question #2:  How would you rate the “Drumwright” music?

91% gave the music a 5
9% gave the music a 3
(No 1s, 2s or 4s)

Question #3: Were you emotionally affected or moved by the “Drumwright” story?

64% said the story moved them at the 5 level
27% said the story moved them at the 4 level
9% said the story moved them at the 3 level
(No 1s or 2s)

Question #4:  Did you have a favorite moment in the show?

“That’s a tough one - I liked it all!”

“I was gripped by the story and honesty did not want it to stop at intermission. I thought “Bath Time” was so very clever and memorable. Also, the song, "Nothing," was sobering. I have tried to tell friends about this experience and found it hard to describe. I really enjoyed the whole experience. The actors were very believable.”

“How Ocie so quickly became a man of the cloth and was so adept at pulling it off.”

“I loved the quilt-making song (“Common Thread”) between Mary and Kathleen! What beautiful imagery! It was definitely one of my favorite parts! I also loved the ending - it’s unexpected and has a great moral teaching.”

“The song, “Kathleen,” was beautiful. All the music was great and I loved the variety of tunes. The consternation and conflicting emotions Ocie felt after becoming the Preacher was so impacting.”

“Bath Time” with Dan and Rance and the song, “Say Yes.”

More results in a future post!
