Scene 2 certainly gave its audiences variety with a splendid array of songs from different eras and its colourful display of costumes for each medley. Good singing was on show from the opening number One Night Only from Dreamgirls, through oldies like Well Did You Eva and Me and My Shadows to the more modern We Go Together from Grease, a medley from Les Miserables and to the less familiar Footloose and Man in the Mirror. You Can’t stop the Beat was an inspired choice to end the show. These numbers were interspersed with the nicely nostalgic Slipping Through My Fingers, the happily harmonised You’ve Got a Friend and Moon River and the creatively choreographed in the likes of Hit The Road Jack. Light relief came with the humorously portrayed Fings Aint What They Used To Be, My Old Man’s a Dustman and Seven Little Girls Sitting in the Back Seat. The singers were ably supported all through by Jon Hall on the drums and Cris Sagar on the keyboard who also sang, appropriately, the Piano Man. This was a democratic show where each company member was invited to submit a list of shows for selection. This worked well. The company is growing in number and deserve to with their talent and enthusiasm for song and sheer enjoyment in performance. Congratulations to all for a truly entertaining evening.
