Report

Author: Chris Clarke

This show hit the deck from the opening with a well held together orchestra under the baton of new Musical Director Meng Khaw, The Choreography had been well rehearsed by an enthusiastic cast.

Well done Lesley-Anne. The show had 10 principals; Josh Hill as Chad and Nicole Ray as  Heller deserve a special mention for holding the show together. ably supported by James Highton as Dennis, Jo Dring as Sylvia, Mark Chinnery, as Jim Heller, Laura Kidger as Miss Sandra, Hannah Bailey as Lorraine, Jack Cooling as Dean Hyde, Clare Proctor as Mayor Matilda Hyde, Adrian Dobson as Sheriff Earl.

Costumes fitted the Elvis era very well. This type of show is not the easiest to portray so well done to James for tackling this not too often performed production.
