Review: David Porter applauds the Lowestoft Players' golden jubilee production.
Musicals are worth celebrating any time, but the Lowestoft Players have a special reason to pull out the musical theatre stops.
Founded in 1967, the award-winning Lowestoft Players open their golden jubilee year with The Sound of Musicals at their very own Bethel Theatre.
With more than 50 musicals to their credit, not to mention pantomimes, plays and revues, this talented, continuously inventive all-age cast present a sparkling show offering a taste from most of those musicals!
More than a concert of excerpts, this has dancing, moving, magnificent singing, comedy, emotion and a gripping sense of showbiz and spectacle - a hallmark of the Players' house style.
You may also want to watch:
From traditional musicals like Annie Get Your Gun, Carousel, Oklahoma! and Oliver!, to less familiar favourites such as Jekyll and Hyde, Titanic, Grease, Little Shop of Horrors, Boogie Nights and The Scarlet Pimpernel.
They showcase moments from Chess, The Hired Man, Summer Holiday, The Full Monty and Spamalot. There is the traditional, the experimental and the joyous glory of stunning costumes and backdrops, enthusiasm in waves and a professionalism that belies the 'amateur' status they enjoy.
