'Such a good show.'

This show could have graced any professional stage: Every one of the principals acted and sang superbly and the chorus were a joy to listen to – not a note out of place. The set and costumes were just right. The orchestra was well balanced and not too loud – it was lovely to hear all the words from those on stage.

Danny Shaw playing Fredric sang really well and was obviously very comfortable on stage. Well done. Tim Henshaw acted very well as The Pirate King, as did Allen Christey as the Major General. Ann O’Shea played the part of Ruth, the maid of all work. I think she was a little too glamorous to be classed as the plain and elderly nurse joining the Pirates after signing up Fredric as a pirate and not a pilot. Ken Brook as the Sergeant of Police brought much of the comedy to the show. He and his team of policeman had all the audience laughing, well done.

Now to the girls: What a delightful group and such lovely voices. Katherine Seager and Lauren Robson-Tatlock, playing the sisters Kate and Edith, sang and acted very well. And I’ve saved the best ‘til last. Mabel, played by Eleanor Molloy, was outstanding, her beautiful pure voice was a joy to listen to. She looked delightful onstage.

My congratulations to everyone involved in putting on such a good show.
