Overall, Striking 12 is a quirky, heartwarming and immensely enjoyable production to watch, ensuring that you leave the theatre in a positive frame of mind and a smile on your face.
Off-Broadway musical Striking 12, inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s short story The Little Match Girl, will be staged at the Union Theatre this Christmas.
The Spelling Bee may be a traditionally US phenomenon, but the show definitely works for an audience over the pond. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is infectious, fun, uplifting and hilarious, and is sure to be a big hit (that’s H-I-T).
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is brilliantly bonkers, and proves what I knew all along – that spelling really is fun. But the show also champions those who dare to be different and reminds us that sometimes it really is the taking part that counts. This little gem of a production is a feel-good treat and guaranteed to put a smile on your face; don’t miss it.
