Spring Awakening NODA Review

Cygnets had a fabulous time at the Stockwell Playhouse last week, performing the stunning musical Spring Awakening to packed houses!

Judging from the audience reaction the show went down a storm - a view shared by our district NODA representative, Des Wilby, who had some lovely words to say. Here are a few snippets:

"Aimee Parnell is to be congratulated as Director for this wonderful piece of theatre. Attention to detail was precise, the movement of props during the musical numbers was effortless and the overall pace was terrific." 

"All movement from the 13-person cast conveyed real emotion and truly reflected the action.  The graveside scene was moving and poignant, the various fight scenes were realistic and worrying but it was the passion, frustration and release of teenage anger that was exceptional.  Overall, the choreography was fabulous and really added to the show’s appeal.

"Veronique Piercy gave an excellent performance as Wendla demonstrating not only a fabulous singing voice but some exceptionally strong acting skills. Challenged with portraying this naïve girl, whose mother was too embarrassed to tell her the facts of life, Veronique interpreted the role beautifully and gave a believable performance."

"Matthew Wright was ideally cast as Melchior. With great stage presence, and an excellent singing voice, Matthew gave a terrific performance."
