Lowestoft Players’ Christmas Spectacular
at The Players’ Bethel Theatre

Christmas Spectacular 2014 review published in the Eastern Daily Press, 8 December 2014

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. Lowestoft Players annual Christmas Spectacular has transformed their headquarters at The Bethel into a warm, welcoming and family- oriented Christmastide theatre.

This is a variety show that crackles throughout with seasonal celebration from a large, all-aged cast. A host of traditional festive songs and carols are treated in a wide range of styles from Dickensian to 1950s.

Once again pupils from the Louise Elizabeth School of Dance are a delightful addition with extracts from Anastasia and The Snow Queen.

The choreography is inventive and there are moments of more reflective images interspersed among the glamour and comedy. Costuming and effects are carefully planned to make for a great night out.

Excellent musical direction and accompaniment comes from Francesca Warren and the whole show is directed by Louise Clarke on her first solo directorial outing, assisted by experienced hands. Total teamwork and a professional approach are part of the hallmark of the consistently award-winning Players.

This certainly is a lovely antidote to the stresses of Christmas shopping!
