The Sound of Musicals to celebrate 50 years of the Lowestoft Players

Musicals!  – The Sound of Musicals, review published in the Eastern Daily Press, online edition on Saturday 30 September 2017.

Musicals are worth celebrating anytime, but the Lowestoft Players have a special reason to pull out the musical theatre stops.

Founded in 1967, the award winning Lowestoft Players open their golden jubilee year with ‘The Sound of Musicals’ at their very own Bethel Theatre.

With over 50 musicals to their credit, not to mention pantomimes, plays and revues, this talented, continuously inventive all-age cast present a sparkling show offering a taste from most of those musicals!

More than a concert of excerpts, this has dancing, moving, magnificent singing, comedy, emotion and a gripping sense of showbiz and spectacle – a hallmark of the Players’ house style.

From traditional musicals like Annie Get Your Gun, Carousel, Oklahoma and Oliver, to less familiar favourites such as Jekyll and Hyde, Titanic, Grease, Little Shop of Horrors, Boogie Nights and The Scarlet Pimpernel.

They showcase moments from Chess, The Hired Man, Summer Holiday, The Full Monty and Spamalot. There is the traditional, the experimental and the joyous glory of stunning costumes and backdrops, enthusiasm in waves and a professionalism that belies the ‘amateur’ status they enjoy.

Happy Birthday, Lowestoft Players! Join their party; it’s on till 8th October.
