Reviews & Awards

John Applin - NODA

July 1995

This production of BROS at Poleden Lacey was professional in every way, from the music of your orchestra directed by Carl Smith, dazzling choreography by Mandy Demetriou, costume design by Suzy Raftery, all put together by Director Meg Murnane. Outstanding is the word that describes all the elements of this production, and what a marvellous credit the Society is to the amateur stage.

You had a cast of Stars and that includes all members of the chorus, choreography was of the highest standard and on this occasion the gentlemen outshone the ladies, the rehearsal mode was tremendous, whilst when they became strolling players we had a complete contrast in style and mannerisms.
