For Christmas I was given two tickets to see Sister Act in the Norwich Royal Theatre – and what a night it was!
One of my best mates came with me. We both have a great love of all things music and boy we’re we in for a treat of an evening! The show was written and directed by Craig Revel Horwood and starred the fantastic Alexandra Burke (man that girl has a cracking set of pipes!)
Norwich Theatre isn’t huge, so regardless of where we had have been sitting we would have had a fantastic view!
I cannot express just how PHENOMENALLY talented the entire cast was.
What I found most incredible was the fact that there was no orchestra! The small cast (I reckon about 30 max in number) did all! Music, set moving as well as acting singing and dancing!
There we’re only three extra people who didn’t appear on stage, who we reckon played bass, guitar and piano/organ.
Obviously there are a whole host of behind the scenes teams, including the costume department who made incredible outfits (all that 80s glitz and glamour!)
I rediscovered my love for theatre last night, so am definitely going to try and see a few more shows over the next couple of years here in Norwich!
