NODA report

 

What a lovely relaxing way to spend an evening with the sailors of HMS Pinafore. The orchestra, under the direction of Oliver Longstaff, began the evening with the delightful overture. When the curtains opened they revealed a wonderful well designed set. There was a strong male chorus of sailors and an equally strong chorus of sisters, cousins and aunts and their singing was a joy to listen to.

 

Captain Corcoran (Donald Stephenson) delivered both his lib and vocals with lovely clear diction and you could hear every word. Sir Joseph Porter (Bobbie Greatorex) provided much amusement especially in 'Never Mind the Why and Where', he is obviously very experienced in this field. Josephine (Helen Johnson) had a lovely clear voice which was very easy to listen to and Liz Kelly as Little Buttercup provided us with more humour and was well cast in this part.

 

A very strong cast supported throughout -there was not a weak link amongst them.

 

The costumes were excellent with great attention being paid to accessories and hairstyles.

 

Overall this was a superb production and it was a pity that more people were not there to enjoy it. Perhaps they are waiting to see it at the G&S Festival in August!
