ANNIE - MISS HANNIGAN
"Roxanne De Vito plays the drunken Miss Hannigan to perfection." The Weekly Volcano She's very expressive and has a powerful voice." The News Tribune "I was lucky to get to see them practice my favorite musical number in the show, Easy Street,two or three times. It is a saucy, upbeat number with growling horns and comical expressions from Miss Hannigan (Roxanne De Vito), Rooster (Chris Serface) and Rooster��s girlfriend, Lily (Jenifer Rifenbery)." The News Tribune
PSYCHO BEACH PARTY - CHICKLETT
"Standout Performance is by Roxanne De Vito as Chicklett, a girl with more than 1 personality. Chicklett is a skinny teenager who wants to learn to surf more than she wants to make love. As alter-ego Ann Bowman, all she wants to do is make love. De Vito is sensational as the schizophrenic. Even though the majority of her role is comedy, she reduces the audiences to near tears when she tells of a childhood tragedy." - The Columbian
WITHOUT APOLOGIES - BRENDA
"It's fun to see Roxanne De Vito hold her own with stage legends Mark Allen and Gaynor Sterchi." - The Columbian "De Vito is especially funny in the scenes in which she is awkwardly pregnant." - The Oregonian
COME BACK TO THE FIVE AND DIME JIMMY DEAN, JIMMY DEAN - SISSY
"There are no weak performances, but De Vito steals the show as the free-spirited Sissy, who has lots of hair and lots of chest." - The Columbian
