There was not a dry eye in the house by the end of Let Me Entertain You presented by the Seaford Musical Theatre Juniors at the Barn Theatre in Seaford at the weekend.
The musical was set around the songs of Robbie Williams and other swing legends. Written and directed by 17 year old Josh Henry, it told the tale of the feud between the Rocks and the Blues with a classic ‘boy meets girl’ tragic love story.
The lead role of Robbie was played by 14 year old Charli Finch, who recently performed with Hairspray West End star, Leanne Jones, in a variety show. His powerful performance of My Way brought the audience to its feet whilst the pitch-perfect tones of his beautiful co-star, 16 year old Monique Loosemore as Jessie, was greeted with rapturous applause.
Other notable performances by Ali Gibson, Veit Schagon, Dom Avey, Omkar Deodhar, Jade Rogers, Olivia Simpson and Karla Marsland brought the show to life, each with quirky characters bringing comedy and tragedy.
