It is long, and I joked with Musical Director and pianist (yes there really is a real upright piano used and not a keyboard) plus six other accomplished musicians, when he publicly said all Colin Wilson’s play are two hours long. This one beats any I have staged in length but it is so good it doesn’t show.

I also have to mention the SUPERB costumes. Headed up by Violetta Kanarek with support from Charity Putman and Teri Quappe.

Teri is also co-director along with mum Barrie (who also is one of the band). Both of them did all the choreography and Teri, if all that wasn’t enough, has one of the STAR roles – The Witch (and Cinderella’s mother).

Time does not permit me to say anymore except:
