Following on from last year’s sold-out run at Greenside @ Nicolson Square, Exeter University’s Spotlights Show Choir are back with an all-new Night at the Musicals.

With 29 singer/dancers and a nine piece band, this is a big production, and is a high energy performance from start to finish.  As a straightforward choir, they would be great to listen to, but when you add in the dance performances too, this is a show not to be missed.  Their numbers range from the classic 1950s musical “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” to current favourite shows such as “Hamilton” and “Matilda”, via the Time Warp and Footloose, so there should be something here to please every fan of musical theatre.

This was very much an ensemble performance, with every single person giving it their all, but as in most such productions there were a few individuals who really stood out.  There were certainly some young people performing tonight who I think could have a successful future in musical theatre if they choose to do so.

With some Fringe shows, 50 minutes is just enough (or sometimes too long…), but with A Night at the Musicals, I couldn’t believe how quickly the time passed.  There were absolutely no weak moments in the show and, judging from the calls for more, and the happy faces of the audience as they left, this Fringe is going to be another huge success story for Spotlights Show Choir.
