For years I have heard people rave about the spectacle that is Showstoppers by Wales Musical Theatre Company. Now I know why.

As soon as the curtains opened I knew I was in for a great night. An amazing array of African animals stood proudly and roared the opening bars of The Circle of Life from the Lion King.

Just as I thought emotions couldn’t run any higher, Act One finished with songs from Oh What a Lovely War! - commemorating the WW1 centenary. Union Jacks were wafted by audience members as they enjoyed authentic wartime entertainment.

Miss Saigon ramped up the raunch as we were transported to sleazy club Dreamland, plus many more.

Their stamina was a sight to behold.I left the Acorn awestruck by this inspirational musical community who had laid on a true spread of Showstoppers.

How so much talent can hail from the small villages of Kiveton and Wales is beyond me.
