Report

Author: NOEL G. RIGG

This was another outstanding production by this very talented Youth Theatre Company. There were so many brilliant acting and singing performances from all the main principals that it is hard to say which I enjoyed the most. Jordan Barker (Rum Tum Tugger), Nicola Watson (Old Deutoronomy), Louis Ashpool (Mistoffolees) were superbly confident and much to be admired. Bethany Stenton (Skimbleshanks) gave perhaps the most eyecatching  performance - surely a star for the future. But the cream of the crop was the amazing performance of Lucy Peel (Grizabella) her fine acting and spine chilling rendition of 'Memory' will long be remembered. The chorus numbers were extremely well sung and the choreography was well arranged and performed. The scrapyard set and the fine costumes did much to enhance this exceptional production as did the sound and lighting (I loved the permanent moon - most creative)
