Cromer Pier review: They did it again, a wonderful show

Its reputation as the last show of its kind in Europe remains intact, even if the country has voted to leave.
However, despite the Seaside Special Dancers sending temperatures inside the quaint end of the pier theatre soaring, no-one was making a sharp Brexit stage left on opening night.
As the sun went down on the Norfolk coast, the curtain went up on Show Two of the Cromer Pier Show, now in its 39th year, on Saturday.
And, despite admittedly only having days to rehearse the act, comedian Phil Butler, who compered the show, served up a treat – even if some of it was unscripted.
The madness and mayhem of Australian juggler James Bustar and many voices of comedy impressionist Marea Smithson were punctuated by the seriously sassy Emily Yarrow and king of swing Rob McVeigh in their role as lead vocalists, which culminated with the company uniting for a performance of Queen classic We Will Rock You to end the show.

A cameo role for the children of the Marlene School of Dance during their twist on Oliver, left the audience crying out for more.
However, the review was written for us at the start of the show with a guest appearance from the Eastern Daily Press in the opening sequence which proclaimed: 'They did it again, a wonderful show'.
