Congratulations to everyone involved in this youth production of an evening’s entertainment that pulsated with energy and talent; I enjoyed it immensely. Vocals and extremely good harmonies from the principle singers and whole ensemble were of the highest quality as was the musical arrangements from the very creative Musical Director, Jenny Axtell. The inclusion of some very mature musical numbers was a pleasant surprise and they were sung with a matched maturity, roundness and delivery that at times belied the youthfulness of the cast. Nicky and Sarah certainly encourage the young cast to push the boundaries and this was evident in the range and variety of songs performed.  

It would be unfair to select any one of the 37 cast members, as they were all delightful and extremely good. The animated faces, body movements and choreography brought smiles to everyone’s faces throughout the evening, although there was the odd poignant moment which subtly changed the atmosphere due to the change of tempo and style which was exceptionally good too.

It is such a joy watching so many young people absolutely loving every moment on stage, entertaining a packed hall of friends and family who loved it too. Thank you very much HMTC Youth Group; thank you for the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful show.
