An extremely professional and talented crew brought this well known 50s hit to the stage in Bury St Edmunds.

It was fast paced, with great Brooklyn accents and superb vocals from Suffolk Young People’s Theatre.

Humour was well timed and executed and set piece dances well handled.

Asha Ray as Miss Adelaide shone. She was confident, convincing and is a star in the making, while fellow lead Emily Spampanato was a touching Sarah Brown the Sally Army leader. Adrian Seeley and Max Welton as Nathan Detroit and Sky Masterson were excellent. Conner Love-Foster was also very smooth as Nicely Nicely Johnson.

Set around a crap game that Detroit needs to set up romance blossoms for loveable rogue Sky and Detroit, Adelaide’s fiance of 14 years. Loesser familiar numbers, which are quite challenging, were performed beautifully and there was great chemistry between the lead couples.

Ray delivered ‘Adeline’s Lament’ superbly, playing well to the comic aspect of the song, while Welton and Smapanato’s ‘Never Been in Love Before’ was delivered in a finely composed manner.

The dancers created lively ambiance in the Havanna scene and the second half opener of ‘Take Back Your Mink’ and there was a resounding certainty in the well known ‘Sit Down, You’re Rocking the Boat,’

Well directed and staged these young people have again proved they put on a show which excels and did great service to this show by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows with Frank Loesser’s great music. There was also stirling work from the orchestra under directorship of James Recknell.

The show runs until Saturday night. LA
