If you're searching for a show that will leave a smile on your face, look no further than The Producers. Following the story of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom, who set out to produce the ultimate Broadway 'flop,' the show is filled with hilarious moments that keep the audience beaming from start to finish.
Studley Operatic Society have assembled a stellar cast of principals who bring this show to life, expertly led by Keith Parish playing Max and Jonathan Boxall-Southall as Leo. Both are superb in their roles and they are strongly supported by an array of characters, including Michael Bentley as Carmen and Richard Smith as Roger. Providing the campest comic relief you could possibly imagine, they were both fantastic.
Vicky Khawaja and Anthony Roige confidently took on the roles of Ulla and Franz. Khawaja's performance of When You've Got It, Flaunt It and Roige's Have You Ever Heard The German Band were particular highlights of the evening.
Two special mentions must also be given. Carole Corden's portrayal of Hold Me Touch Me was utterly hilarious and Aaron Gibson shone through as Stormtrooper in Springtime For Hitler - what a fantastic voice he has.
The ensemble harmonies shone through in Along Came Bialy and Goodbye, under the musical direction of Norma Kift. Directed by Kevin Hirons and choreographed by Maggie Moriarty, Studley Operatic Society received a well deserved standing ovation last night and left the audience rapturously applauding.
