Pirates from Penzance Occupy St. Faith’s Church Hall
From 6th to 9th January, in spite of the inclement weather, The Dynamo Youth Theatre, presented a memorable production of "The Pirates of Penzance" by Gilbert & Sullivan in St. Faith’s Church Hall.
A structure had been built, representing a galleon, with the audience on three sides. The young people burst upon this space with energy and enthusiasm; there wasn’t a dull moment throughout the whole production.
The costumes were colourful and imaginative and the choreography was creative, allowing the cast to use the whole of the space, often (orphan!) with breath-taking movement.
The confident and talented main characters acted and sang with conviction to the modern backing track.
The members of the wonderful choruses of pirates, major general’s daughters and police, each remained constantly in character, reacting to each other.
The great strength of the production was that everyone, both the Cast and the Crew worked as a team, to create a really professionally presented theatrical event.
The young members are indeed fortunate to have the opportunity to experience this level of dramatic art which is due to the vision and leadership of the Director, Andrew Bowker and his team, assisted by parents and supporters.
The success of this production confirms the viability of Dynamo Youth Theatre using St. Faith’s Hall as their future base to the benefit of all the community.
