This was my first visit to a full play performed by Glantawe Theatre Company and I was greeted by a warm welcome from the company.
William Walters as Teddy, who had not been cast in his favourite role as Daddy Warbucks and tried to undermine the actor who did get the part commanded the stage at his every appearance as he tried to take over running the production declaring himself to be Director and Advisor to the whole company.
The experienced cast worked so well together, bouncing off each other as they came to terms with the dilemmas of the play. The laughs came thick and fast as more and more calamities occurred as the “performance” progressed. Some very good performance from Lowri Paynter, Heather Rees, Russel Rees, Becci Wakeman, Tim Barrell and Heidi James.
The set was well designed and functional and the lighting was appropriate. A good variety of costumes, props were apprpriate.
You know its been a good show when the audience leave with smiling faces, and they all did.
