Merry Widow Review

Nova Horley, our Noda Rep, has reviewed our recent prodution of The Merry Widow:
"I was interested that the Director had brought out much more humour in this version, which gave it dimension and interest.

The cast sang well, and the ensemble numbers were lively.

All in all an interesting and energetic version of an old favourite, with some well-sung performances from the various cast members."

A Big Thank You!

A big, big thank you to our audiences for coming along to the Queen Mother Theatre and supporting us this week. Your cheers and applause really made The Merry Widow special. 

Our thanks also go to our Director, Richard Syms, Musical Director Jane Stott and Choreographer Vikki Rehm for your dedication and patience in getting the best out of us. Its been great fun. Not to  mention our tireless Stage Manager, Richard Fraser, for keeping us in line and working against the odds to get get the show off the ground, and the lovely Paula Fraser who costumed us up-to-the-nines in silks, suits, feathers and Pontevedrian ribbons. We all looked fab! Some of us wanted to keep them...

Our next production will be Gilbert and Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance which we will be presenting at The Queen Mother Theatre, Hitchin from the 29th March - 1st April 2017. It's going to be a rip-roaring production with a twist! We look forward to seeing you all again there.
