Top Hat NODA Review

The review of our recent production of Top Hat from Des Wilby, our NODA rep, is now available - and we're pleased to say it is another cracker!

You can read the full review here, but here are some highlights:

"Everyone associated with the society, and this show in particular, should be immensely proud."

"This was quite simply an exceptional show that oozed class and quality throughout."

"The quality of dancing, precision and timing were nothing short of superb.  The amount of hard work, dedication and effort were clearly visible." 

"Nick Moorhouse was perfectly cast in the lead male role of Jerry Travers. The sheer quality of dancing, whilst singing, was exceptional and appeared almost effortless."

"Charlotte Donald certainly ‘did Ginger proud’ and was sensational in the lead female role of Dale Tremont." 

Congratulations to all involved!
