This musical telling the tale of the man eating plant was well performed by this talented society.  

The company were led by Kyle Lamley as Seymour and Lindsey Biddle as Audrey.  Both acted and sang well.  There interpretation of 'Suddenly Seymour' was outstanding.  Alex Davison, Karen Hambleton and Samantha Walker as Crystal, Chiffon and Ronnette really sang well.  Their close harmonies worked well.

They were well supported by Andrew Last as Mr. Mushnik and Steven Foster as dentist Orin.  A nice part, well played.  I must mention the hardworking team of Jonathan Salt, Plant Voice and Tom Berriman, Plant Manipulation, they both worked so hard and it was good to see them take their bows at the finale. 

The chorus numbers were well staged, and, I must congratulate the company on their harmonies. They were a joy to listen to.

The set was really well produced and the transformation between the street scenes and shop scenes went very smoothly.

The orchestra, under the direction of David Blackwell sounded good, and not to loud.  You could hear every word from the stage.
