For their summer concert React! took their audience on a trip through time and different continents which they linked together with scenes created by the young performers. The characters created included a “Dr Who” look -alike who kept regenerating as the show progressed, and a scene featuring Mr Benn (the Fancy Dress shop owner)!

The musical numbers were all well performed, in particular “Hello” from Book of Mormon in which the young men of the group excelled,” I Know Him So Well” (Lauren Dobson, Eleanor Grainger), “Maria” (Cameron Davison), “For Good” (Olivia Lee, Charlotte Harrison) and “Mama I’m A Big Girl Now” by the senior girls. The ensemble numbers had lots of energy and the enjoyment on stage was evident to the very appreciative audience. The finale was a taster of the group’s next main production “Summer Holiday” which received a well-deserved encore. Congratulations everyone on a super evening’s entertainment.
