Happier than any …
Well, that’s the end of another show … Sir Despard and Mad Margaret have toddled off to settle in Basingstoke, the curse of the Murgatroyds has been lifted, and the professional bridesmaids are happy because “the pious charity by which they exist” has benefitted from a total of four weddings!
But, best of all, everyone who saw the show loved Rae Lamont’s new take on the story, which (despite the impression given by the picture above) was full of life and movement. The competing groups of bridesmaids (‘Jets’ and ‘Sharks’ for rehearsal purposes!) even ended up scrapping at the end of Act 1 … There were some delicious comic touches, some tender moments, and a wonderful mad scene.
As always, our team of soloists, chorus, orchestra and stage crew did an excellent and professional job. You’ll find a very positive NODA critique of the production in this post on our Members page.
If you missed it, then there will be some more photographs shortly, but all we can offer you now is a peek at the programme, which you can read at this link.
