Report

Author: LYN EMMERSON – REVIEWED BY RAY EMMERSON

A ‘golden’ contribution for Olympic year with this fast moving summer run. A trip around the world with Musical Theatre was well accepted by the audience. There were solos, duets, trios, quartets and sextets as well as chorus numbers, Tulips from Amsterdam, Take me Back to Manhatten and Windmills Of Your Mind and Edelweiss, to name a few.

Innovative choreography included an exhausting Can Can from five energetic dancers and a foot tapping Putting On The Ritz. There were poignant moments with All I Ask of You, and in contrast I particularly enjoyed the Waltzing Matilda number from the three men. Chorus numbers included a rousing To Life, Grease Medley, and Lullaby of Broadway and of course nearer home, The Cockney Capers and Streets of London. Items were linked with appropriate narration from the Cast. Costumes, lighting and sound were well thought out with no pauses between items

The dedication and commitment by the Company was apparent throughout the performance. A super evening's entertainment which was evident by the accolade the Company received from a very appreciative audience.
