Reviews of Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr were universally positive. The Congleton Chronicle called it “enchanting, funny and an utter joy”. The Sentinel referred to the show as “excellent” and NODA concluded “I was very impressed with the standard and professionalism of these young actors and singers and can’t wait for their next production”.
Thanks to all our reviewers!
Outgoing Mayor of Congleton Sally Holland chose Congleton Amateur Youth Theatre as one of the youth charities she supported in December 2014. Here is Sally handing over a cheque for £400 to our Chairman, Sue Beech. The money will provide much-needed supplies to help with costumes, lighting and set creation for our productions at the Daneside Theatre, giving young people in the area the chance to perform in professional-quality stage shows to entertain the people of Congleton. Thank you!
Of particular note was the performance of Ella Beaumont as Alice… but it was as much an ensemble piece as one for individual performances and the cast as a whole worked together well to make this an enjoyable performance…The set builders also deserve praise. The set was cleanly designed and simple but worked effectively to convery the bizarre scenarios in which Alice finds herself.
