Ken Goodenberger - LyricTenor          Brenda Goodenberger - Mezzo-Soprano

"Brenda Goodenberger as the Lady in the Lake, the only main female character in the cast, gives it her all and has a lovely,
commanding and beautiful voice that has a wide, versatile range and is full of power. Idle and Du Prez wrote several very good
songs for the character that feature various musical styles and Goodenberger knocks them all out of the park. She also has a
strong stage presence which lets her easily hold her own and helps to balance all of the male characters... Tyler Lewis is a gem
as the self-absorbed, vain and narcissistic Galahad. Lewis has great comic timing and a fantastic voice as well. His duet with
Goodenberger of "The Song that Goes Like This" is a showstopper... Ken Goodenberger's musical direction achieves pleasant
harmonies from the large cast and his conducting skills are exceptional, achieving a sensational sound from the fourteen-piece
orchestra." Gil Benbrook – Reviewer

“Theater Works in Peoria is presenting the premiere production of a fantastic new cabaret show entitled I Get a Kick Out of
Cole… All nine cast members are skilled vocalists and have no problem in navigating Porter's more tricky lyrics. A true
ensemble piece, all nine have numerous moments to shine, both in solos, duets and full ensemble pieces, and, while there are
many highlights in the show, here are some of my favorites… Brenda Goodenberger delivers a smashing, comical take on
Nymph Errant's "The Physician" as well as a funny snippet of Kiss Me, Kate's "I Hate Men." … Utpadel, Kalbfleisch and
Goodenberger also provide lush harmonies on "Most Gentlemen Don't Like Love."… Ken Goodenberger (Brenda's husband)
delivers a forceful "I Happen to Like New York" and with his wife sings a spirited version of "It's De-Lovely" that includes some
lyrics from the song that aren't often heard… With fantastic arrangements and musical direction, a smoking trio of musicians,
and a winning cast, to quote a famous Porter lyric, "what a swell party" I Get a Kick Out of Cole is.” Gil Benbrook – Reviewer

“Bravi! Bravi! Bravi! To the five women ~ Kathleen Berger, Brenda Goodenberger, Marie Gouba, Alanna Kalbfleisch, Alexandra
Utpadel ~ and four men ~ Tony Blosser, Ken Goodenberger, Roger Nelson, Dominik Rebilas ~ who grace the Theater Works
stage in the 29th Season opening production of I Get a Kick Out of Cole. (This) ensemble serves a cornucopia of delicious and
nuanced interpretations of Porter's distinctive oeuvre. Smooth and sleek, elegant and sexy, rich and mellifluous, silvery and
honeyed ~ in solos and duets and together, this powerhouse of talent delivers both the full range of Porter's genius and an
intriguing narrative of his loves, laughs, and losses.”

“This was an ensemble piece, but with individual cast members giving us some truly memorable performances.  They gave us
the gift of Porter songs that were funny, poignant and heart-felt and sometimes just a little naughty (at least during the times
they were written).  I sat back and let the music wash over my soul. There was not a weak voice in this cast of 5 women and 4
men.” ElandRelic Reviewer for Valley Stages

“ There’s a ton of talent onstage… In the plus column, Brenda Goodenberger delivers wonderfully comic takes on "Nobody's
Chasing Me" and "The Physician"…” Kerry Lengel – Reviewer AZ Republic

“Steve Hilderbrand and Gary Gallner string 50 of the best (Cole Porter songs) together with an interesting commentary of
Porter’s tragic life to create a new cabaret revue, “I Get A Kick Out of Cole.”  They use a chic unit set, nine solid singers who
provide pleasant song renditions, costume the cast in attractive gowns and appropriate formal attire, and have a sharp three-
person band play the tunes with verve. One couple, Brenda and Ken Goodenberger, handle the show’s stylish sophistication
best.” Chris Curcio - Reviewer KBAQ

“Ken Goodenberger has a gorgeous voice that makes Tiernan's songs soar, and he has several. He and Robertson have good
chemistry, making their romantic relationship realistic. Goodenberger's stage presence, facial expressions and body language
when he is around Grace or her husband accurately portray a man who is in love with a woman yet cannot be with her… (this)
PVCC production has competent leads, lush costumes, swift direction, and a spectacular orchestra.” Gil Benbrook – Reviewer

“"A Little Night Music" deals with the universal subject of love, in all its wondrous, humorous and ironic permutations.This is a
typical Stephen Sondheim musical with complex meters, pitch changes, polyphony and high notes, for both male and female
roles. This cast at Theater Works did him proud as they produced pitch perfect clarity to all the songs to perfection. The actors
brought forth a most believable depiction to the characters. In particular outstanding performances by Ken Goodenberger
(Frederik Egerman) as the confused lover of all women... Brenda Goodenberger (the Countess) the manic wife… as they set the
scenes with their most melodious voices and songs.” Jay Horne – A Director’s Viewpoint

‎”Ken Goodenberger and Brenda Goodenberger were both amazing last night in excerpts from "A Little Night Music" at a
Centennial event. I am so looking forward to this production!” Kenneth LaFave – Composer, Reviewer

"Has it already been said that "The family that does plays together, stays together?" Many of the uniformly capable cast
members (in Theater Works' Camelot) share the same last names. This can sometimes be a double-edged sword, but in the case
of Ken Goodenberger ("King Arthur") and Brenda Goodenberger ("Nimue" and "Morgan LeFey") it indicates the union of the
two best vocalists of the group." Maile Hernandez -  Reviewer Phoenix Theater Examiner

“Everyone was so impressed with Ken and Brenda’s performances. We had 4 Board Members at the performance on Friday –
each one walked away very impressed with The Ken and Brenda Show and all are very enthusiastic about Ken and Brenda’s
return for Camelot. They really entertained the crowd and our patrons loved their performance. A big “THANKS” from all of us.
Ken and Brenda Goodenberger and their accompanist Bill Moore, are a “class act” and delightful to work with. Based on the
enthusiastic response we received, we are likely to do more of this.” Jack Lytle -Theater Works Executive Director

“Ken & Brenda Goodenberger were absolutely superb. I was totally blown away not only by their operatic voices, but also by
their wonderful harmony abilities. Their 90 minute presentation was filled with delightful songs that we were all familiar with
invoking cheers from the entire audience. Everyone that attended was delighted… A thoroughly enjoyable evening.” Michele
Poetsch of Desert Foothills Theatre

“I want to tell you how happy we all were to have Ken and Brenda Goodenberger at our club Sat. night. Their show was just
wonderful and we heard only the best reviews from all our guests. Ken and Brenda made our Broadway evening a success.
Thank you again for a great performance.” Susan Kaufman - Event planner Terravita Country Club

“We sincerely thank Ken and Brenda Goodenberger for making our evening reception such a memorable event! Participants (at
our Annual Pediatric Update Conference) are extremely complementary and consistently tell us to “Bring them back!” We’re
looking forward to seeing Ken and Brenda again next year.” JoAnn Cunningham - Manager, Medical Education Phoenix
Children’s Hospital

“Brenda Goodenberger was a sinuously, insincere villainess par excellence.” Paula Shulak - Reviewer/

“I want to applaud the tenor soloist, Ken Goodenberger, for beautiful, lyrical singing…The warmth and beauty of his voice sent
chills through my body.” Misa Criolla Reviewer -

“Excellent vocals by… curvaceous Brenda Goodenberger (who) portrays sexy Widow Black-Illyitch-Tsuchiya-Crazyhorse-
Hurwitz.” Jack Hawn Reporter/Reviewer The Wester

“Ken Goodenberger’s musicianship is of the highest caliber, and his ability to work with people is extraordinary. (He) has a
beautiful tenor voice with tremendous flexibility and a wide range. Though trained as an opera singer, he has the ability to
lighten the voice, making it suitable for all kinds of music, from Broadway to Renaissance music.” Dr. Jeffrey Stevens

“(The chorus of Sweeney Todd was) a well trained precise ensemble which interpreted the composer’s intricate, colorful music
in a most professional way. Each soloist did a marvelous job as well. … Ken Goodenberger was a suitably lecherous Judge
and… In their wonderful quartet, Groen, Newhard, Goodenberger and Erek more than proved their mettle…Theater Works in
general and (Music Director) Hilderbrand in particular have outdone themselves. Run, don’t walk, to see this one!” Paula
Shulak - Reviewer/

“It’s the first Spotlight Youth Theatre show directed by Brenda Goodenberger, a longtime performer and director in the Valley
who, along with husband Ken, has nine children and four grandchildren. Goodenberger delivers a perky, fast-paced production
that marries the silly with the sentimental. It’s a musical truly made for family members of all ages.” Lynn Trimble – Reviewer
