What a show!

The Unknown Theatre Group produced a spectacular show, Les Musicals, at the Howardian Centre, and I had the privilege of being in the audience.
What a show, girls and boys from eight years up sang, acted and danced to selections from past and present musicals with such dedication and perfection.
The audience was delighted over and over again with the perfection of singing and acting. Sarah Lark must be destined for professional musical productions.
One little nine-year-old, Stephanie Blackmore, sang and danced her little heart out. She has such ability for someone so young and she will almost certainly go a very long way.
Every girl and boy was really dedicated to the part they were playing, accompanied by an outstanding orchestra.

Enjoyable Musical

I took my family to the Howardian Centre to see Les Musicals which was performed by the Unknown Theatre Company. I must say we thoroughly enjoyed the whole show which was really well presented.
There is so much talent in that company it was a joy to watch and I looking forward to seeing their next show.

Unknown show scores a hit

Visiting Cardiff we went along to what I thought was going to be just another youth music show. How wrong I was.
The youngsters of The Unknown Theatre Group showed such talent, enjoying the show as much as the audience.
Young Richard Hibbert really tickled me with his version of Little People, from Les Miserable (sic). I expect to see him and Damien Robinson, who sang Martin Guerre, in the West End soon.
Well done to all the production team, your hard work really paid off. Keep up the hard work all of you.
I will be back to see your next show - I’m sure it will be a knockout, too!
