Sweeney Todd

★★★★★   A cut above:

Sunshine At The Rose

★★★☆☆  Showstopper overload:
Sunshine At The Rose, a collection of songs from musical theatre featuring some of Captivate’s most accomplished performers, is a spirited and melodic entertainment that shows you can have too much of a good thing.

Spring Awakening

★★★☆☆ Stirring:
Captivate Theatre’s Spring Awakening is a committed and occasionally thrilling production that does not quite have the conviction to carry everything off.

✭✭✭✩✩ Family Fun:
Young critics scheme review
A cheesy, child-friendly adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, Captivate Theatre’s Shakespeare in the Garden: Romantic Romeo is a fast-paced musical will appeal to all the family.

Spring Awakening

Spring Awakening

★★★★★ Cult classic:
Based on Frank Wedekind’s 1891 German play about repressed sexuality and its manifestations, Spring Awakening gets a a surprisingly refreshing production from MGA that mixes 19th century Germany with rock music. And does so exceptionally well.

✭✭✭✭✩ All that Jazz:
Bright and crisp and even, the aspirations of the dancers on stage at the King’s on Thursday night shone through their performances. These youngsters were Broadway Bound in more ways than one.
