Paradise in Augustines

The Sorcerer

The Sorcerer

★★★★☆   What larks:
For careful execution and straightforward fun, it is difficult to imagine many recent productions of Gilbert and Sullivan have beaten Cat-Like Tread’s The Sorcerer at Paradise in Augustines.

Gobland For The Goblins!

Gobland For The Goblins!

★★★☆☆    Playful:
Billed as a fantasy video game for older children and their families, writer-director James Beagon and Aulos Productions’ latest show sees them switch genres yet again. Gobland For The Goblins! is an interactive show with some very pleasing elements.

Spring Awakening

Spring Awakening

✭✭✭✭✩ Visceral:
Scuzzy and raw in all the right ways, Eusog’s take on the Rock musical version of Frank Wedenkind’s play about burgeoning youth sexuality has a vital edge to it.

Lest We Forget

Lest We Forget

★★★☆☆ Reflective:
There is a kernel of emotional and poetic truth to Lest We Forget, the latest offering from writer-director James Beagon and Aulos Productions in the Studio at St Augustines. However, its effect is dissipated in a reworking of familiar themes and a setting that fails to do justice to its ambition.

Young critics scheme review:
Fast-paced, funny and moving, the Edinburgh University Savoy Opera Group brings to life Howard Ashman and Alan Menken’s cult classic Little Shop of Horrors.

✭✭✭✭✩ Shooting for the stars
Remember when you were young and they said you were special? That you could do anything you wanted if you just believed? Well, they lied.
