Last night we went to our local theatre to see a stage production of South Pacific, and it was a lovely night out. It stars Helena Blackman, who was the runner up in the televised search to find a new Maria for The Sound Of Music. In my opinion, that part wasn’t really for her.. whereas this one was.
The story was well told, the dancing was fun, and the singing was great.. from all the performers.
For me though, the star of the show was Christopher Howell, who played Luther Billis. He had great energy, and was highly amusing when dressed as a woman!
All in all, a very polished performance from all, and an experience that was as good as going to the West End!
