An Evening With the Musicals

Hethersett Players entertained packed houses over three nights at Hethersett Village Hall with a rollicking good time display of music and dancing. 

In one of the group’s best productions to date, they showed their versatility in “An Evening with the Musicals,” blending well known songs and routines with some lesser known pieces. 

The ease with which the group moved seamlessly from one number to another and one dance routine to the next belied the obvious hours of rehearsal and fine tuning that had gone into the production. It was all made to look fresh and vibrant with song and dance from world renowned musicals such as “Oklahoma”, “South Pacific”, “Les Miserables”, “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” and “Chicago” alongside lesser known works from “Tell Me on a Sunday”, “Martin Guerre”, “Our House” and “Betty Blue Eyes”. 

It was the group’s 12th production in an entertainment line going back to 2004. Over that time they have mixed serious drama with comedies and variety shows, illustrating the huge versatility that exists within a fine amateur group. 

The enjoyment of the evening also came from the group’s ability to change styles, genres and decades almost at the drop of a hat – mixing in the traditional with the modern and introducing many of the audience to new songs. 

The show was directed by Sarah Wright, who also found time to take part in many of the items. Kate Rowe’s dance routines were excellent throughout and the Shuffle Pack Band led by local GP Tony Press helped to enhance the evening. 

Proceeds from a raffle will go to the Norfolk Accident Rescue Service which provides volunteer doctors and paramedics at the scene of road accidents. It is a charity close to the heart of Dr Press.
