Co-producers and choreographers Scott Coldwell and Lucy Dean and their incredibly talented cast, Whitney Martins, Adam Lyons, Natasha Mould and Alex Brown, gave two outstanding performances on Saturday ...
They kicked things off with The Greatest Showman, followed by a range of hit songs from 9 to 5, Chicago, Dream Girls, Wicked, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Grease and Dirty Dancing. With their slick vocals and choreography, they had everyone dancing and having the time of their lives! Can you believe they created and rehearsed this show in just two days? It shows how talented and professional this team is.
To add to their performance, Scott and Lucy gave the stage to young artists from The Academy dance school in Watford, who gave a spectacular performance of 'Ex Wives' from Six The Musical along with songs from the new Gloria Estefan musical, 'On Your Feet'. Solo artist, Zakk from Scott's dance academy, Pips, choreographed an incredible routine to Hamilton's 'Alexander Hamilton' and 'One Shot'.
Musicals in the Park was a few glorious hours of escapism into fantastic live musical theatre that I think we have all sorely missed. Take a look at our social media pages to see some great photos and videos from the event.
Sadly, that was the last performance of the 2020 summer schedule, but we certainly went out on a high. Thank you to Scott, Lucy and the team for a wonderful show. Thank you to all our audience members who came to support us and the artists at a time when we need it most.
I'm extremely proud of what we've achieved this year and I can't wait to see what happens in 2021. We're already planning, so keep an eye on our website and social channels.
