Our Lady's Light Opera Motherwell "A Christmas Carol the Musical"
MUSICAL GOLD, past, present, future
MOTHERWELL THEATRE, 23-26 MAY, 2012 This revue was our first in the (thankfully) reopened Motherwell Theatre and our chance to re-establish our presence having had no production in 2011. The celebration of our Golden Jubilee had been put together rather hastily, since our plans for presenting “Show Boat” had been thrown into chaos and failure and our intentions for the 50th Anniversary were brought forward. Given that we had presented 73 shows previously, we could not represent every one’s preferences for representative music and some were disappointed. With that - and a difficult rehearsal regime, it was with some anxiety that we gave five performances of the show. It turned out that we worried too much. One member of the audience (with no connection to the Society) described it as “a brilliant, life-enhancing show” and while not everyone was quite as enthused, we could reflect on a very full and satisfying programme, with solos, duets, ensembles and full chorus numbers, from G&S to “Glee”.
