Excerpts from SceneOne Plus Trial by Jury / HMS Pinafore Review

by  Steve O’Neill review   18 October 2018

“I am a renewed man and all the richer for going to see production.

It was absolutely brilliant from the first opening note to the last strident chord!

Set in front of curtains, the evening began with the rousing chorus of Trial by Jury………the stage was packed by a very sizeable chorus of very, very fine monochrome singers.  The overall effect was highly stylised both in the acting and of a black and white film with splashes of colour coming from the defendant’s new girlfriend, jilted fiancée and the Judge. I love minimalism in theatre so the use of two simple frames that became doors, dock and juror’s bench really impressed.

After 35 minutes that felt more like 10, the utter nonsense and hilarity of Trial by Jury came to an end and I was thoroughly awake, energised and eagerly awaiting HMS Pinafore……………….The director, Claire Camble-Hutchins, brought some brilliant touches to the whole production which was deftly performed and hugely funny.  She even brought bits of it (more) up to date – I loved the ‘20s flapper girls, Sir Joseph Porter’s entourage, and she even sneaked in a few very modern references to hilarious effect.………………..The cast were all fantastic, obviously having the time of their lives and the sizeable audience couldn’t help but have a great time too.

Excerpt from Stour and Avon Magazine Review – 26th October 2018

by Julie Adams 

“………………..Good work by Musical Director Helen Brind who coaxed singers and orchestra to make the most of Sullivan’s sublime music and plaudits to Director and Choreographer Claire Camble-Hutchins. She used her cast – and Gilbert’s witty words – imaginatively to produce a stylish, fast-paced and entertaining double-bill. Look out for Bournemouth GaSP next year, surprises are promised. “
