Happy Ending - Witch Reprieved
This year’s Rising Stars show was a great success. Nikki Wright’s clever adaption of the traditional Hansel and Gretel story, with lots of suitable local references, kept the audience laughing all the way through. To everybody’s relief the Witch was saved rather than burnt. The cast responded to the script wonderfully with brilliant performances. The youngest groups, appearing as elves and crows, were outstanding.
As usual the set and costumes were excellent and the orchestra did a great job. Getting the audience to join in most of the songs, familiar tunes with special words, worked very well. It was a great team performance. Details of the cast etc. can be found in the DVC Section.
