Scroo­gly good

South Waikato News - - OPINION -

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Pu­taruru The­atre Play­ers. Your Christ­mas pro­duc­tion Oh Scrooge was thor­oughly en­ter­tain­ing from the open­ing scene to the clos­ing num­ber.

Ex­pe­ri­enced per­form­ers are the back­bone on any show but for me the young­sters, teenagers and first timers on stage were the stars. Cos­tumes were ex­cel­lent and well-re­searched for au­then­tic­ity.

I ap­pre­ci­ated the time and work that went into the mak­ing of the coat worn by the Spirit of Christ­mas (Present).

Au­di­ence par­tic­i­pa­tion was en­thu­si­as­ti­cally en­cour­aged by the ac­tors. Live shows are suc­cess­ful when there is a great script and it is in­ter­preted by a good di­rec­tor and mu­si­cal di­rec­tor. Tina Ward demon­strated she can do just that.
