Even before the final bars of the first night performance had been played by the quite magnificent 34 piece orchestra, which had been carefully assembled by Mr Carter and inspirationally led by our brilliant Musical Director Mr Chenery, the audience had started to applaud and cheer in response to a production overflowing with talent and exuberant energy.
"A hugely entertaining evening: energetic, slick and very funny."
"Congratulations to all the cast and crew on a fantastic, flawless production of The Mikado! It was obvious that a huge amount of effort has gone into the show and everyone involved should be proud. The acting and singing was exceptional, and the orchestra was a perfect accompaniment to the action on stage. The production had a real sense of fun and celebration, and that feeling definitely extended to the audience. Well done!"
Mr Keaney would like to sincerely thank all the cast, orchestra and crew of The Mikado for their tremendous commitment and hard work on an extremely ambitious production; "Thank you especially to Mr Chenery, Mr Wood, Mr Savage and Mrs Crier, whose passion and expertise in their respective crafts was a constant inspiration. We loved getting to know The Mikado and bringing it to life."
