I was step-sprung, charmed by this miniature musical, The Season, by Jim Barne and Kit Buchan.
Christmas arrived early in Ipswich thanks to new musical The Season, a co-production between the New Wolsey Theatre and Northampton’s Royal & Derngate Theatre.
Director Jamie Lloyd offers up a complete reimagining of the Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice musical and one which feels sparkingly fresh in every single aspect.
Yet again, the people of Newbury find themselves spoiled with this display of some of the finest talent in the land putting on a show that alongside being a rollercoaster of emotions, Sweet Charity is a festival of sensational song and dance.
You can never have too much charity it would seem, and as Rebecca Trehearn prepares to take on the role of Charity Hope Valentine in Nottingham next month, Gemma Sutton tackles it here at the beautiful Watermill Theatre in Newbury.
