Great story, would benefit from better direction by Avril
I enjoyed most of the show but some of the singing was far to "shrieks" for my liking. The end of act one left us with headaches! A lot of the dialogue was sung and would have been better spoken, would have had more dramatic effect. An enjoyable show that didn't live up to the hype sadly.

Looovvved It! by Dean
The whole cast were absolutely sensational - one of the best shows I have seen. Jimmy Early (Adam J. Bernard) nailed it!
Phenomenal vocals by Claire
Great version of the film and Amber Riley definitely was the MOST amazing lead vocal I have ever heard-didn't want her to stop!
The show was absolutely amazing. Amber Reilly was phenomenal. I have never seen a whole audience stand in unison after a song before. It was a moment in theatre I've never experienced before. I'd pay the money to see it again just to see her sing THAT song
