I was not planning on blogging about my visit to see my son’s 6th Form production of The Producers as being a school show I was expecting a fab night but just a school show. However I cannot keep quiet about what I have just witnessed. The Producers really was an outstanding production showcasing exceptional talent. Every voice, every dance move, every scene change, every actor took on the challenge with amazing maturity and absolutely smashed it, especially Emile Palmer-Almira whose accomplished performance as Max Bialystock blew me away. Sadly tomorrow is the final performance but luckily for me I’m going again!
A childhood favourite brought to life in this fabulous theatre! The theatre only opened in 2017 and has been really well thought out with a large welcoming entrance housing the ticket office, bar, coffee bar, cloakroom and merchandising sales. The theatre itself is cosy and comfortable and the big impressive stage and the numerous toilets complete the package.
The show itself was fantastic. Beautifully staged using large moveable props and clever choreography and puppetry to envelop you in the snowy world of Narnia and more. The show was also very funny and with a touch of enjoyable audience participation it also provided a little bit of pantomime magic without being over the top. I loved the show but I also loved the theatre and will definitely keep an eye out for future events.
