The reviews of our latest Norfox Young Actors company production are in and the word is excellent. The Magnificent Tale Of Emily Law & Arturo The Waterboy has now finished but watch out for upcoming events and projects by our young peoples theatre company here.
This cleverly contrived and well acted play is enhanced by extracts from Manchester band, Elbow, ripples in Arturo’s tank by lighting designer Tom Dexter Scott, and clear flashbacks.
The play should be performed by other companies. It would make a lovely children’s Christmas show.
Performed entirely by a young cast, every performer gives a committed and heartfelt turn with good clear diction and making good use of the space. Several professional companies could take note of this. It is a pleasure to be able to hear each word clearly and a fundamental basic of any successful performance.
Scene changes are beautifully punctured with a variety of tracks by Manchester band Elbow and this works well to fill in the gaps and really lifts and enhances the whole production and is a welcome addition to the performance.
Overall this is a charming piece with some well written dialogue, well constructed performances. The Norfox Young People’s Company have produced a professional and accomplished performance that is both entertaining and engaging to watch.
