Summer Holiday Show reviewPosted on 15 Nov 2012, 03:00
Our November production - Summer Holiday went down a storm with audiences
and received a fantastic review from NODA. It was a great
opportunity to showcase some up and coming young local talent. Read the NODA review below...
Review by Peter Breach from Noda:-
This musical gave older members of the audience a chance to enjoy recalling happy memories of their youth and provided younger members with an opportunity to hear pop music that had well- structured tunes and audible lyrics. It was heartening to see the predominantly young cast take on prominent roles which they performed with confidence and enthusiasm; there were particularly strong vocal performances from Rob Callaby (as Don) and Charlotte Hicks (as Barbara Winters/Bobby). Senior members of the company, Carol Spinks and Richard Laight, performed their comedy roles with relish. Full marks must go to the very efficient stage crew for the speed at which they carried out set changes that frequently required a double decker bus to appear on stage. The varied choreography was skilfully devised and energetically performed. The music provided by the band had a really authentic sixties sound, (I know because I was around at that time!), and the blending of vocal harmonies was most pleasant to listen to. This was a lively team effort that delivered great entertainment for the young and young at heart. Well done, what a shame the ‘gremlins’ occasionally got into the sound system!
