Vic­to­rian Eng­land back in Bolling­ton

Macclesfield Express - - EAST CHESHIRE RAMBLERS -

ATROUPE of tal­ented ac­tors brought Vic­to­rian Eng­land life to the stage with a pro­duc­tion of Oliver!

The sold out show was per­formed by Bolling­ton Light Opera Group (BLOG) at the Civic Hall in Bolling­ton over five nights, with hun­dreds of vis­i­tors head­ing to the show.

Diane McIn­tyre, who di­rected the show with Matthew Grat­ton-Cash, said: “We had an amaz­ing week. All six per­for­mances were com­pletely sold out, which cre­ated the sort of at­mos­phere which lifted ev­ery­one, es­pe­cially the chil­dren who did in­cred­i­bly well.”

Matthew added: “We are very proud of ev­ery­one in­volved.”

Sam Tapp, 10, took the ti­tle role, with Chris Crox­ford, 11, as the Art­ful Dodger. Fa­gin, the show’s black-hearted vil­lain, was played by Richard Com- ish and Bill Sykes was played by Craig Har­ris. Stephanie Evans was Nancy.

Tavis Hill and He­len Valen­tine played Mr Bum­ble and Widow Cor­ney and John Clarke and Di Gor­don played Mr and Mrs Sower­berry.

Other mem­bers of the cast were: Sarah Bai­ley, Danny Sherratt Em­maClaire Shel­don, An­thony Davies, Martin Ban­croft, Ge­orgie Heron and Luke Buck.
