Report

Author: Wendy Winterburn

This was a lovely and enjoyable show.  It is always lovely to see the mix of ages on stage.

I enjoyed the Pirates of Penzance joke and also the reference to HMS Pinafore by the We are Sober Men and True song.

My favourite scene was the UV scene in which Sarah Suet played by Ed Owen was swimming with the fishes to bobbing along.  It was a very clever scene and I loved the little mermaid sitting on the floor by edge of the right of the stage.

Rat Face was well played by Harry Jones got the boos that his character deserved and was served by some very cute rats.  I loved his expressive face when in the finale he was scared about the moves he was automatically doing.  Lydia Denton who played Fairy bow-Bells was a very good foil to his plans.

There was a lovely funny moment in which Andrew Baker as Wizar and one of the other male cast were dancing behind the girls to the all the single ladies number.

All parts were well taken and everyone on stage were clearly enjoying themselves.

Thank you for inviting me and for the enjoyable evening.
