Newspaper Review

Daily Echo Curtain Call

REVIEW: Oklahoma!, Stage One Youth Theatre, Ferneham Hall, Fareham

11:56am Tuesday 26th February 2013 in Curtain Call By Karen Robson.

THE exuberant musical with the shade of darkness, the story revolves around rivalry between cattlemen and farmers and two suitors for the same farm girl Laurey.

Stage One’s production effectively captured the shifts in tone from light to dark with sure footed confidence. The increasingly nightmarish and sinister dream sequence at the culmination of Act 1 had real force and the power to disconcert.

While the choreography was occasionally a little over fussy when it counted the show delivered on perfectly formed, rumbustious company numbers. The production was anchored by some impressive central performances.

From the very first notes of Oh What a Beautiful Mornin’ Matt Fisher (Curly) announced the arrival of a significant stage presence and commanded proceedings for the rest of the night. He was well matched by Ellie Jones as Laurey.

People Will Say We're In Love (With Stage One).

Here is the gist, a practical list of dont's for you...don't praise my charm too much and don't laugh at my jokes too much....

It was Oh, such a beautiful morning, many months ago I was woken out of my dreams by Dave and Jacqui phoning to say that the next show would be Oklahoma! and as I'm just a guy who cain't say no - here I am!

Many a new day came and went and rehearsals began; so rushing home from work in Surrey....

I got to Mayfield School on a Frid'y, by Sattid'y I'd learned a thing or two,
For up to then I didn't have an idy, of what the modern show was coming to!
I counted twenty teenagers talkin' mongst theirsel's,
Almost every time that I arrived,
Then I put my ear to my Samsung mobile phone,
And by now you'll realise: this is all contrived!

So show week has finally arrived, you've cut out the shenanigans and by this time I've realised, that with you (Stage One) it's all er nuthin' - you have to put your all into the show thanlk goodness!

But It's a scandal! It's ann outrage! the MD and the director still are friends, one man likes to wave a stick, the other likes her tea and bic's, but that's no reason why they can't be friends!

As the week progressed, the floor creaked, the pit squeaked, every time that I stood up to give the beat, but I managed to look oh so peaceful and serene, I waved my arms around, and we made a fabulous sound, while the action moved along fron scene to scene!

We've had a great week and when they said Yeeow! Ayipioeeay!
They're only saying you've done fine in Oklahoma, Oklahoma OK!!!

Thank you for a great production.

Dennis

Letter, emails to Stage One

To all concerned with the production of Oklahoma.....

Well done, it was amazing. I come to every production and never cease to be amazed at the talent and dedication of the Stage One performers, who says the youth of today are a rotten lot !

Of course this could not happen without the team of dedicated, frazzled adults that give their time and energy.

WELL DONE ALL OF YOU.

Am looking forward to Grease, can you possibly do better ? Amazingly you do.

Thank you,
Jean Sartain, Southampton.

Yet another success to chalk up! We oldies really enjoyed the performance. It was such a wel balanced show from the youngest to the mosr experienced. To pick out specials would be --the whole cast -- but we did find Jud Fry truly frightening.

Rosemary and friends

PS Though not truly Stage One could a special thanks go to all involved in the lighting - v.g.use was made of the backdrop to help set the moods.

Hi Margaret

What amazing talent all those young people have and the sheer enjoyment they showed in all their performances.
