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.
