A Night at The Musicals - Theatre Review by Toni and Faith

On the 25th June, The Redditch Reviewers attended a performance at the palace theatre called the night at

the musicals. The performance contained performers ranging from the ages

of 3-19. 

Have you ever wanted to have the live feeling of a musical? Or have you ever wanted to see a

representation of some musicals? If this is the case then the night of the musicals is definitely

something spectacular to see.

The palace theatre takes pride in their appearance with the layout of the performance room. The

walls were a cream colour with details in the wallpaper and the skirting boards. The light fixtures

looked very royal like with the lighting dim before the performance started. The red curtain looked

velvet and it was a bold colour in the theatre compared to the cream walls. Faith said “feel like I’m

meeting the queen”, indeed it did feel like we were going to have a royal visit. The palace theatre

has an overall posh persona that they take pride in upkeeping. It was a busy night with a lot of

elderly people there to see their kids/ grandchildren performing.

When the performances started it was very magical with how the kids were performing. They had

brilliant costumes for each act, some were extremely representative to the characters from the

song/ film they were performing from. There were many different types of dance that they

incorporated into the acts such as ballet, breakdancing, gymnastics, tap dance and 60’s style dance.

The main type used was ballet where they wore pointe shoes for a couple of their presentations

which they executed beautifully. Considering the ages that were on the stage they all gave brilliant

enthusiastic energy and most of them remembered the choreography. Although the younger kids

were confused a lot of the time for their placing on the stage but they still looked cute even though

they didn’t do it right. They all had a lot of confidence for going onto the stage and performing. the

choreography was well planned out for each performance. They could have tried to have more

space, as a couple of times some people got hit but it was well concealed by the dancers. When

rehearsing they could try and do it in a smaller area so they can work on their spacing. Their singing

was good and nice to listen to. They were all brilliant performances to see.

    Thanks for the review Toni & Faith, there's always something special about seeing children perform. I think it's their relative naivety – I always like looking out for the one kid who is absolutely bored out of their mind!
    Do you think you'll attend more of these events in the future?
