"'Cupid Comes to Camp Waterlogg' is a modernisation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Ranger Lorie is having a big Valentine’s "Kiss-Off" square dance to help raise money to save her dilapidated kids camp in the Catskills. Cupid sends the Baby of the Woods (Puck) to bring all the star-crossed lovers together, and confusion ensues. Meanwhile, Ranger Joe (Bottom) makes an ass of himself, while performing in Las Vegas." (The British Universities Film & Video Council)
"Experimental, Humorous. The Comedy-O-Rama draws characters that everyone can relate to, just turned up a notch for chuckles. The production is slick and story engaging. (Tanya Ott, WBHM-FM, Birmingham, Alabama)
"An atmosphere of folk art and sophisticated sound equipment merge to create radio theater of a distinctly upbeat, G-rated variety." (Deborah Medenbach, Times Herald-Record, Middletown, New York)
