2002 - Review: Honk!

Taken From The Kidderminster Shuttle July 25th 2002 BASED on Hans Andersen’s fairy tale, this is certainly not an “Ugly Duckling” of a show – it is most definitely a swan. Performed for the first time in Worcestershire by Kidderminster Operatic and Dramatic Society Youth Section, this musical is funny and happy, but manages to [...]

2002 - NODA Review: Carousel

Kidderminster Operatic & Dramatic Society Carousel Director: Pat Scully Musical Director: John Griswold Choreographer: Wendy Richards Venue: The Rose Theatre, Kidderminster Callum McArthur gave us a different type of Billy Bigelow, he played him very laid back with a devil don’t care attitude and sand the very difficult song Soliloquy very well.

The play circulated around a production of The Beggar’s Opera by an amateur operatic society, when [...]

2001 - Review: Singin’ in the Rain

From The Kidderminster Shuttle March 8th 2001 FILM star Don Lockwood is played by Julian Richards, who seemed unusually uneasy at the start, but gained in confidence to become the excellent performer we are used to. He had a fall during the water routine, but just carried on. Julian’s wife, Wendy, was brilliant as Lina [...]
