Christmas Spectacular

StagedRight Productions is proud to present a new way to celebrate Christmas!

Review 2016 – Ed McGee

This show from the talented young stars of StagedRight, really was spectacular. The audience enjoyed a programme of seasonal music, as well as some well known popular songs and songs from musical theatre.

 All the Stagedright groups, Infants, Juniors and Seniors played their part wonderfully well. The way the soloists and chorus blended together was brilliant.

 Highlights for me included the Carpenters tribute compilation, Anthem from Chess, my personal favourite, and Pie Jesu, which was sung sublimely by boy soprano Alex Bousfield and Hannah Dodd. Having said that, the whole musical programme was quite amazing..

The links between the music was very clever, and we were treated to some comedy, a Santa picket line and a version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, each part very well played and much enjoyed by the packed audience in St John’s Church.

Costumes, as always were superb, lighting and sound in the church was excellent. The seamless transition between musical numbers from the different age groups was a joy.

This show from a very talented group of young people was the perfect way of getting into the Christmas spirit. Thank you to everyone concerned with this fantastic production.

 

Review 2015 – Ed McGee

This show was well named a Christmas Spectacular, because that is exactly what it was, very, very spectacular. The audience was treated to a brilliant programme of seasonal music as well as some famous modern musical classics.

The ages of the performers varied from five years to eighteen years old, but the musicality and stagecraft of the teams varied very little, regardless of age. There were some lovely team and full company ensembles, during the show, the highlights for me being the two finales, Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, was amazing, at the end of Act 1, with the full company, and ‘Oh Come All Ye Faithful’, and ‘Impossible Dream’, from ‘Man of La Mancha, was an equally fantastic Finale showstopper.

 Highlights, as far as solos go were Megan Hunter, singing ‘Time To Say Goodbye’, quite beautifully, what a superb voice the young lady has. Kaya Palmer and Joe Usher’s duet, ‘Christmas Tonight’, was also excellent. To be honest there wasn’t a weak performance in the show.

The precision and animation of all the teams was a joy to behold, everything had been, obviously so well rehearsed, everyone a great credit to their coaches.

The set was very seasonal, lighting was always appropriate to the action taking place and the sound was particularly good.

All in all, a brilliant show from this extremely talented youth theatre company and what a wonderful way to get into Christmas. Congratulations to every single person involved.

 

Review 2013 production – Cumbria Live

“Real animals….. a comedy video shot in Debenhams……. ultra violet puppets…dancing, singing…story telling….

All this and more is in StagedRight’s “Christmas Spectacular”, a fast paced, slick and professional production which mixes the traditional with the modern in a very enjoyable way.

……The show passed in a flash and almost before we knew it, it was over and time to go home. If you want to see a show which is a litle different from your average Christmas production, then this is it. I can’t recommend it highly enough”

“Possible the best thing I have ever seen”

“I can’t describe it apart from brilliant”

“Something completely different but perfect”
