Cast of Big Time

Great Fun but not The Full Monty

The Guild Players staged an entertaining revue, Big Time, at The Kilshawe Theatre. From the flappers of the 20s to the Victorian Music Hall, from Joke Walls to humorous skits, the cast adapted with obvious enthusiasm. The strong directorship of Ann Nettleship ensured excellent use of the stage and energetic dance routines. Particular show highlights included Sue Watson’s dreamy solo, Nathan Sewell’s thumping rendition of The Techniclour Dreamcoat and the eye-catching routine One. How refreshing to see the inventive role played by the children in the cast; such involvement can only be good for the future of The Guild Players. The icing on Big Time had to Monty’s Men. The striptease started, the Velcro ripped, the crowd roared but alas we didn’t get The Full Monty! Eye-catching costumes and the great musical talent of Richard McPherson helped the cast truly reach the Big Time. It’s a welcome surprise when an amateur group can provide solos that bring goose bumps to the skin and skits that truly make you laugh. Razzle Dazzle’em they sang, and they certainly achieved their aim!
