Sweet Charity

Blast Reporter Sam went along to see the Key Theatre's summer production. Performed by the Key Youth Theatre after just three weeks of workshops and rehearsals - find out what Sam thought of Sweet Charity...

Sweet Charity @ The Key Theatre, Peterborough
Tuesday 24th August 2004

Set in New York in the swinging 60s, Sweet Charity is the story of one girl’s 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 things...

Tuesday 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 worth watching.

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.
