What the public say

Everyone who has any involvement with this superb production deserves a standing ovation! As an extremely proud parent of a cast member I have seen the show twice, loved every minute of it twice and, yes, cried twice too!!


Oh my goodness -what a brilliant, moving performance. Hard to believe the performers are so young. Superb voices, excellent acting, lovely costumes, great dancing & choreography to excellent music - what more can I say. Wholeheartedly deserving standing ovation with 2 lead performers in tears & many of the audience too!! There must have been some very proud parents in the audience. If you can get a ticket then DO!!!
