Mid Devon Advertiser's Review- StardustPosted: 16th March 2012
There’s no doubt about it, Babbacombe Theatre’s latest offering Stardust is its best variety show to date.
It’s got every ingredient needed for a memorable night at the theatre, from powerhouse vocalists and zany comedy to quirky sketches and sassy dancing.
Producer and Director Colin Matthews has pulled out all the stops to make sure this is a show to remember.
Packed with songs from timeless musicals such as Starlight Express and Phantom of the Opera, to more modern West End numbers from Matilda and Hairspray, there is something for everyone.
The crowd also enjoyed a rendition of Take That’s Rule The World. The pitch-perfect harmonies really did the song justice.
The choreography, by Georgia Lee, was also polished and the troupe Danze Fantazy were full of energy and panache.
All rounder Ben Nickless is also a class act and had the audience in fits of giggles with his comical antics and impressions.
Seasoned comedian Danny Posthill was also on form. His quick wit was brilliant throughout.
Vocalist Holly Cosgrove is the gem of the show. With her powerful voice and confident stage presence there’s no doubt she’ll have a glittering career in the theatre world.
Singer Eloise Cole also has confidence and talent by the bucketload. Performing duets alongside Holly, the pair would look at home on a West End stage. One of the show’s highlights was when they sang ‘Somewhere’ from Westside Story with passion and conviction.
Singers Elmer and Sampson completed the great line up.
This year the costumes and lighting were also spot on and it’s great to see the variety show is moving with the times to get bums on seats.
