Boom! A courtroom blast! Director/Producer Gauci together with Musical Director Martin Cheney and Choreographer Kerry-Lynne Hauber have realised a brilliant slice of Fringe entertainment. It would be difficult to find anything to trump this piece performed far from the madding city crowds at the excellent Parks Theatre. (Car parking is a breeze and local eateries are superb!)
The cast of five were on the same page throughout. The teamwork was seamless in song, dance and knockabout routines. They were equally brilliant and palpably as one with script, movement and music, all of which they worked with consummate skill, clarity of voice, abundant energy and immaculate timing. Both timing and pace were spot on.
To the cast comprising Katie Packer, Adam Goodburn, Paul Rodda, Casmira Hambledon and Joshua Angeles I offer my unreserved congratulations and appreciation for a great night out at a great little theatre. It is impossible to single out any individual performance for extra praise. However I did love “If only you knew”, “My Daddy Hate me” and the reprise “Judge Jackie Justice”. The tango scene was also a favourite, but all of the character transformations and presentations demonstrated the ability of five very skilful actors at the top of their game.
Martin Cheney’s band of three were unobtrusive and provided a perfect underscore. Lighting was well plotted to enhance costume, character and movement. The audience was involved and entertained from start to end. And by “audience” I do mean everybody!
Davine Productions delivers a great night out at a great venue. Not to be missed!
