Charity @ The Key Theatre, Peterborough
Tuesday 24th August 2004
in New York in the swinging 60s, Sweet Charity is the story
of one girls wide-eyed search for love and happiness.
Originally brought to life on the cinema screen by Shirley
Maclaine, it's now the turn of a new crop of bright, young
night, and I had recovered from my weekend and was ready to
watch a great performance. I got great seats at the front
of the stage and the play began. Hayley Sanderson who played
Charity achieved a great deal with a great singing voice and
pure perfection acting managed to keep the audience entertained.
The cast were all very good, and throughout the whole production
there was a definite mix of emotions the audience felt from
laughter to sorrow.
The theatre itself was packed and the cast definitely got
a good response from the audience. You should stay tuned for
their next production because I can tell it will truly be
The cast have a great deal of talent and should carry on acting
because they all have great potential to go far. The music
that evening was fantastic, and the props were really good
and believable. The choreography of the dancing was done very
well, and it must have taken a long time to get everything
so spotlessly good. If I was to give this production a mark
out of ten, it would be ten, very well done to the whole cast
and crew, the summer performance was truly worth watching.
