WOW! The Cardenal Belluga Theatre Group’s latest production “MOVIES & MUSICALS” was a sellout, last Friday night. For an amateur production, the audience was amazed at the professionalism and energy of the enthusiastic cast of ladies and gentleman of a certain age.
They managed to recreate scenes from more than 20 memorable movies or musicals, with a spattering of comedy sketches and an unbelievable tap dancing routine from eight synchronized ladies in gorgeous shimmering turquoise blue costumes.
It was difficult to keep up with the many costume changes, from the opening number, in mainly monochrome, through to a stage full of Indian squaw’s and braves, including Mini HAHA. The second half opening number ‘Master of the House’ from ‘Les Mis’ recreated the scene of innate debauchery worthy of any professional production. For the finale, which enables everyone taking part to have ‘their moment‘, the whole stage was full of silver, gold and turquoise as they portrayed a splendid rendition of ‘Lullaby of Broadway’.
It was two hours of indulgence for all and the sellout enabled the Theatre Group to present two cheques on the night, 1,000 euros to SEM local Ambulance service and a special donation to the wonderful Cunningham Nurses in fond memory of Val Walker, a prominent member of the group who is sadly missed.
