What people are saying

"The Around the Bend Players performed for the Annual Convention of the "Ohio State Society of Enrolled Agents" in Perrysburg, Ohio last year. What a great performance! It was exciting, entertaining, and had audience participation. It was one of the highlights of our convention." (2005)
Michael A. Fioritto, CPA, EA

"Thank you to the Around-The-Bend Players for a fantastic time at the Ransom and Randolph Christmas party this year. You really involved the audience in the whole experience and I have had nothing but positive feedback from everyone attending (that is saying a lot because we usually have a few complainers in the crowd). We would love to have you back again!" (2006)
Mary Richardson, Quality Assurance Supervisor, Ransom & Randolph

"I would like to recommend Tom Hofbauer and the Around the Bend Players if you are looking for a great night of entertainment.

Tom and his troupe performed an improv comedy show for an Appreciation Night for nearly 100 people who serve in the Arts Department of our Church. They did a terrific job of incorporating the audience into their routines and had us laughing the whole night.

I was also impressed by their ability and willingness to perform within our requests to make sure the content was funny and "clean". They were easy to work with and I would highly recommend them."

Marty Pennington, Lead Pastor, Main Street Church.

"We cannot thank you enough! The performance was a huge hit. I received many wonderful comments on the event over the course of the evening! Also, your contribution to the "Make A Wish" fundraiser was very generous. Although you stepped out of the room, we did present a check to the NW Ohio Chapter that evening. Our money will pay for a Perrysburg child, with CF, and his family to go to Disney World? Thanks again."
Suzanne Peats, Friends of Perrysburg, Perrysburg, OH

"Dear Tom and Improv Players,
What a great performance! Your talented troupe was a definite hit with our seventh and eighth graders. Many watch Drew Carey's "Whose Line..." and were itching for the opportunity to get on stage with you. Thank you for being a part of our Teens High on Life program and demonstrating your acting techniques. It was a very entertaining hour for everyone. Thanks also for helping our parents in our efforts to have a positive influence on our children."

Janise Kaufmann, THOL Speakers and Activities Chairman, Perrysburg, OH
