2013 - Shuttle Review: High Society

From The Kidderminster Shuttle March 14th 2013 WHAT a fast-moving show, packed with familiar songs and the whole package performed well. It was a delight from the acting, singing, costumes, timing, all-round production under the direction of Pat Scully, including musicians, and those oft forgotten vital elements of any show, the lighting and sound engineers. [...]

2012 - Review: Calendar Girls

From The Kidderminster Shuttle September 27th 2012 There was a well-deserved standing ovation for the first night of this superbly-written theatrical offering, which is brilliantly performed by the brave ladies of Kidderminster Operatic and Dramatic Society (KODS). This is a very funny play, with laughs throughout, but there are also some poignant moments and such [...]

2012 - Review: Return to the Forbidden Planet

Taken From The Kidderminster Shuttle This show can be summed up in one word – fun. The exuberant young cast were so polished, remembering all the (quite difficult) Shakespearean-type dialogue, as well as all the wonderful old rock songs and various dance routines. All played their roles well but standing out was a very confident performance by [...]

2012 - Review: Calamity Jane

From The Kidderminster Shuttle 15th March 2012 I Just Came Down from the Windy City – well the Rose Theatre – with those wonderful songs still ringing in my ears! It had been years since I saw this happy musical and it was such a pleasure to revisit the Black Hills of Dakota on the [...]

2011 - Review: Death by Fatal Murder

From The Kidderminster Shuttle September 6th 2011 THE third in Peter Gordon’s hilarious trilogy about the hopeless Inspector Pratt once again gave us a wonderful night at the theatre, when we laughed incessantly. Pratt, played for the third time by Nigel Preece, is just about the most incompetent copper ever: he can never get a [...]
