On Friday 26th and Saturday 27th January, the Haddenham Youth Theatre presented two productions: the junior group had great fun with 'Sherlock Holmes and the Emerald of Alcazar" while the senior group took on the challenge of "Pride & Prejudice".
Here are two appreciative reviews, courtesy of Julie Wing.
Sherlock Holmes and the Emerald of Alcazar
The production of Sherlock Holmes was a delight to watch and the talented young cast shone with their enthusiasm and enjoyment.
The humour was delivered with perfect timing and the audience were totally captured by the original sound elements such as the East-Enders theme tune and bicycle bells. We were also entertained by the not-so-dead Mr Poppin, as he was dragged across the stage!
I am sure that these youngsters are the TV and stage stars of the future.
The play was beautifully produced and the props, lighting and costumes helped us to feel as if we were right there, in the Jellied Eel pub!
Pride & Prejudice
Elizabeth carried her prejudice gracefully but also revealing the sharp thorns of the pain she felt on behalf of her family.
The audience was transported into the trials and tribulations of the Bennet family and the beautiful acting enabled us to feel simultaneous empathy with Mr and Mrs Bennett.
We laughed as Mr Collins bowed, we sighed as Jane's heart was broken and we cheered for the weddings.
Superb performances by everyone — complemented by an extremely impressive set, as can be clearly seen in the photographs featured in the GALLERIES section of this website.
