Kava Girls – 1*

August 25, 2014 |

This is a very poorly-written piece about three people looking for their big break in theatre, working as understudies. Most of the singing is very low for the women and there is quite a lot of pitchy singing in general, … Read More

Flight of the Lawnchair Man – 3***

August 24, 2014 |

This was the delightful and very colourful tale of a man stuck in a rut who just wanted to follow his own dreams and fly, with only his girlfriend to support him. Apparently based on a true story (which seems … Read More

Kindred Spirits – 1*

Kindred Spirits – 1*

The blurb is quite promising with lots of good words promising good things. However this is an overly-long confusing mish-mash of very amateur theatre which was quite uncomfortable to watch.

The storyline is slightly surreal and … Read More

Parade – 4****

August 23, 2014 |

This slightly cut down version of Parade was, in the main, very good.

The main part of Leo Frank is a big task, it requires a specific accent and also quite a specific build of actor and Steve Nicholson carries … Read More

The Improv Musical – 3***

August 23, 2014 |

To say this is a low-budget student version of Showstopper! may be slightly unfair but is the easiest way to describe this hour of improvised musical comedy. The students do very well and are almost completely at the mercy of … Read More

The Girl Who 5*****

August 22, 2014 |

This is a wonderful piece of innovative interactive theatre with delightful storytelling. The characters are interesting and engaging with big smiley faces from the audience (old and young) who were engrossed in the show.

The overall production and direction is … Read More

A Chorus Line 3***

August 21, 2014 |

I came with trepidation at seeing a 60min version of ACL but thankfully we got a much fuller 90mins of the show and this turned out to be a pretty good production of this famous show. The venue is really … Read More

Stay Awake – 2**

August 21, 2014 |

Kudos to Luke Speirs for having the guts and determination to bring his own work to the Fringe and I hope this is the beginning of a journey of discovery and maturity which will see new work over the years. … Read More

Funny Girl 2**

August 21, 2014 |

This production of Funny Girl came over as unfortunately too ambitious for this student theatre company. It got off to a bad start with an incredibly dodgy overture but then fortunately the small band settled in and were very good … Read More

A Race of Robots 3***

August 20, 2014 |

This is just a fun and entertaining “B-Musical” with your typical sci-fi scenario. Goodies, baddies, aliens, robots, cheese galore, this has everything you’d expect.

The amateur company with a mix of ages clearly has fun and obviously (and thankfully) doesn’t … Read More
