Amy McEvoy reviews Calamity Jane by Sounds Musical Theatre Company
SOUNDS Musical Theatre Company took to the stage in whipcrackin' glory.
Their large cast brought a lively performance and the chorus was particularly successful. The ensemble was animated and involved in the action.
Calamity Jane (Holli Littlefair) commanded the stage with her interpretation of this feisty tomboy. She was accompanied by her best friend , Miss Katie Brown (Ali Selway), who sung wonderfully.
Lt Danny Gilmartin (James Jarman) and Wild Bill Hickock (Mathew Becker) fought to win the heart of Katie Brown. Wild Bill's scenes with Calamity Jane made this character come to life. The pair worked well together, producing a passionate version of I Can Do Without You.

The colourful can-can dancers were full of energy and excitement and were followed by Mike Chenery who played both Miss Frances Fryer and Mr Francis Fryer spectacularly. His performance of Hive Full Of Honey was humorous.
Henry Miller (Leigh Jarman) was a nervous, bumbling wreck who added much hilarity when he had unhappy customers.
The staging fully utilised the space and the projections complemented the set. The orchestra led by Jenny George, brought the songs to life with the percussionist making a convincing horse.
I felt at times the cast could have projected their voices a little more but overall they were lustily singing numbers such as The Deadwood Stage. This was a bright and cheerful production of a much-loved musical.
