Beyond Broadway

ALISON CROOSE King's Lynn Corn Exchange


It was a night when lovers of musicals could luxuriate in a celebration of some of the best from Broadway and the West End.

From the glitz of Chicago to the drama of Miss Saigon, via the fun of Mamma Mia, a team of real troupers presented a string of showstoppers.

In their midst was 17-year-old Lucinda Bronte, from Wisbech, who so impressed the company at auditions they have included her in their team.

Lucinda, who has appeared in many amateur shows in West Norfolk, has been identified as a star of tomorrow.

She more than held her own alongside the stalwarts who have made Beyond Broadway a highly popular musical concert which has been on the road for some four years.
