What a wonderful night’s entertainment! This familiar tale was retold with all that you need: excellent cast, lively up-dated music, amazing dancing and those corny gags so familiar to pantomime.

Dorothy (played by Mary Cameron) was so good that she kept reminding me of Judy Garland. We booed the wonderfully evil Wicked Witch (Katherine Hickmott), clapped when beautiful Glinda the Good (Jessica Theobald) magically appeared on stage and we thoroughly believed the anxiety the Lion (Terry Gauci), the Tin Man (Tom Tilley), the Scarecrow (Jordan Veloso) and Dorothy felt in their separate needy quests. The sound was particularly good and helped make the Wizard (Oliver Scott) credible in both guises.

This slick production eased though the variety of scenes and the doubling of parts to form a thoroughly good evening out. Director Daniel Bell, and his team are to be congratulated for such a fine performance

KD Theatre Production’s ‘Fame’ in September - October 2016 at the ADC Theatre Cambridge and ‘Aladdin’ at The Maltings Ely 22d December 2016 to 15 January 2017 should be well worth a visit.
