Todd show a cut above
I HAD to write in praise of Frome Musical Theatre Company's production of Sweeney Todd, the musical.
Frome Amateur Operatic recently had a name change to reflect the more diverse range of productions, and the feeling that "amateur" did not reflect the standard being set. Well it could not have been more timely.
Those of us who have had the privilege to watch, or be involved in, shows they have done, have known for years that the word does not apply.
This production raised the bar even higher with Davey Evans, Theresa Bray, and Dillon Berry outstanding, among a fabulous cast.
Special praise to Claudia Pepler (director) and David Hynds (musical director) and crew for the work they clearly put in. Well done to everyone involved.
There are some special people in Frome and Claudia stands as a gem, with her work with the Merlin Theatre, Tri Art, and as a director and actor in numerous shows down the years.
