The Witches - Roald Dahl

Shows - 2002

The Witches - Roald Dahl18th-21st December

Hexagon Theatre, mac

"It's shivery and it's scary - and it's lots of talented youngsters in full flight. There are witches everywhere including a splendidly funny camp witch by Mike Hirons and a fearsome Grand High Witch by the alarmingly authoritative Lydia Burke. What will be most memorable for me is the most impressive strobe lighting sequence I have ever seen - as if we are sharing the tiny auditorium with the biggest firework display in the world - it is a fascinating experience. Magic for the memory." Evening Mail

 

Mill on the Floss - George Eliot/ Helen Edmundson

Shows - 2002

Mill on the Floss17th-20th July

Hexagon Theatre, mac

"A cast so large they cannot all get on stage, tackle an emotionally charged adaptation of George Eliot's classic with all the skill of seasoned performers. Lydia Burke, Alice Naylor and Gabrielle Shakeshaft create tension as they play Maggie at three different stages of her life: Lydia Burke handling the tempestuous Maggie at her youngest age in splendid fashion. Oliver Harvey is strong as the dominant brother, Paul Brotherton is on good form as one of Maggies's suitors and there is a warm and colourful contribution from Dan Dolan as the father."

Spoonface Steinberg - Lee Hall

Shows - 2002

Spoonface Steinberg - Lee Hall

26th-30th March

Hexagon Theatre, mac

"This latest Stage2 offering can only be described as a remarkable piece by a remarkable cast. mac's resident youth theatre has never been afraid to take on a challenge as this production shows. Spoonface first struggles with autism then discovers she has cancer. Her role is faultlessly and bravely taken on by 19 talented girls with each poignant chapter delightfully directed by Jo Tucker and Libbs Packer." Evening Mail

 

Godspell - Stephen Schwartz

Shows - 2002

Godspell24th-27th July

Studio Theatre, mac

"Heavenly production. This is a show that leaves you gasping for adjectives. It's vibrant, happy, tender, sexy - impeccably drilled. Tom Bailey has coaxed some huge performances from this young company. The spirit of this remarkable production surges out from a stage that sometimes has 100 youngsters on it. At its heart, Curtis Allen comes to his Jesus with a confidence totally justified by his performance. The crucifixion is achieved with a riveting dignity, aided by excellent lighting. He is surrounded by a cast that enters wholeheartedly into the fun that is the show's trade mark but which in the second half has the kind of gravitas on tap that totally silenced a spellbound audience."

Much Ado About Nothing - William Shakespeare

Shows - 2001

Much Ado About Nothing11th-14th April

Studio Theatre, mac

"What looks like a cast of thousands fills the stage and swarms into the auditorium. Stage2 is in the business of organised pandemonium. Liz Light's memorable production brims with youthful talent. Speeches flow, conversations crackle and knowing naughtiness is given to its head. From the superb central players - Cian Barry (Benedick), Notzarina Reevers (Beatrice), Sam Millard (Claudio), Victoria Hanlin (Hero) - to the urgent, funny, all-action chorus, every member of this remarkable young team brims with bubbling commitment - Ado is really something!"
