A lot of talent on show at Kings

It really isn’t my favourite musical, but it’s good to support local talent.

Last Saturday I’d been invited by Dotty Deb to see Mack & Mabel performed by the students of Portsmouth Grammar School at the Kings Theatre.

Okay, hands up I dropped off twice in the first act. Awkward!

But I was a bit poorly, and although the show didn’t captivate me because I’ve never been that keen on it, I thought the performers were excellent.

At times I forgot the cast consisted of 13 to 17- year-olds, they were so professional.

The backdrop video screen and all the actors – but especially Ben Schofield as Mack Sennett –really went beyond my expectations.

I loved the show’s programme produced by the school. It had brilliant pictures and articles in sepia.
