Let's Face The Music


This show was a showcase of the music from the era of White Tie, Top Hat and Tails.

In keeping with their previous productions, the cast first appeared in their traditional outfits, but it only took two or three numbers before the coloured scarves and ties were thrown away in favour of long dresses and tailcoats. The mostly black and white set painted in art deco designs completed the effect of a bygone era of style and sophistication.

That did not mean that Sounds Familiar had lost their sense of humour. Gordon Atkinson was hilarious in his bizarre rendition of Gypsy and terrified poor Sue Williams who was left alone to deal with him. Three of the men tried their best to convince one of the other ladies to marry them in Tom Dick and Harry from Kiss Me Kate and Pat Doidge and Rosemary Brown lamented their travel problems of getting up the avenue in A Couple Swells from Easter Parade.

The harmony singing, that the group prides themselves on, was excellent and the whole evening was rounded off with a light-hearted and fun version of I Got Rhythm with half the cast playing percussion intruments.
