Congratulations on a remarkable show. I confess it's not my favourite, but I must stress there was very little with which I could find fault. All the leading characters both sang and acted admirably. In particular I compliment Trevor Fenton on his wonderful portrayal of the title role; he was truly amazing. Natasha Connor [Mrs Lovell], Rob Callaby as Anthony Hope and Carl Lawrence [Judge Turpin] were especially notable, too. The chorus members were strong in support, but there were times when the diction was not very clear. The set, with its essential features for the macabre aspects of this show, was excellent. So too, was the lighting and the special effects were superb. Some were really gory! Peter's orchestra coped well with the difficult score, but occasionally was a tad over-loud. The wardrobe mistress had worked wonders with the costumes. All in all, this show was well-rehearsed with good quality singing and excellent acting. Well done!
