The company@longroad brought the house down last night with their whistle-stop tour of the world of musical theatre. From the atmospheric start of Singing in the Rain to the final rousing chorus from Hairspray, via Wicked (complete with sinister green lighting), Saturday Night Fever, A Chorus Line, Cats, Top Hat, Oliver, Les Miserables, and Sweet Charity, there was something to delight everyone. Foot-tapping fun mixed with heart-felt ballads, brilliant dancing and acting came together seamlessly, with excellent support from the company@longroad’s pit band (with guest appearance by Health & Social Care teacher Lisa Myson on the saxophone) and technical crew.
Best of all – the show was devised by students with just a small amount of input from Expressive Arts teachers – truly an excellent start to the festive season.
