REVIEW

Spotlight Singers

at the Spotlight Theatre

MAKE sure you don’t miss the Tuesday night summer show at the Spotlight Theatre, in West Street, Bridlington.

Tuesday’s show, a performance by the Spotlight Singers, relies on the singers’ voices to keep the audiences entertained rather than dance, comedy and costume changes. And the show does not disappoint.

One feature of the Spotlight Singers’ show – and the other summer performances – is how much the performers seem to enjoy being on stage.

Some singers appear in one, or in some cases both of the other shows making for a busy schedule, however the whole chorus were as energetic as if it was the opening night.

Every member of the cast sang well, with varied songs coming from the musicals, to up-tempo gospel hymns.

However, the stars of the show were Holly White – who sang a beautiful solo version of ‘Songbird’ with her acoustic guitar – and Rebecca Howley, who gave haunting renditions of ‘She moved through the fair’, and ‘To make you feel my love’.

HEROES CONCERTS

NEXT up at The Spotlight are two special charity concerts in aid of Help For Heroes.

Most regular patrons of the Spotlight will recognise Barry Pope as the front of house manager, but Barry, who has a grandson in the Grenadier Guards due to begin a 3rd tour of Afghanistan in January, felt compelled to organise an event.

It is Barry’s first time directing a show, but he hopes Spotlight regulars will support him as all money received will be donated to ‘Help for Heroes’.

Tickets for the shows, which take place on September 16 and 17 at 7.30pm, are available at Bridlington Blinds and Curtains, top of Bridge Street, along with tickets for Tuesday’s Spotlight Singers, Wednesday’s Old Tyme Music Hall and Thursday evening’s Ready Steady Go summer shows – which run until September 27, 28 and 29.

Tickets to all of the shows are £7.50 for adults and £4 for children.

Call 01262 601006 for more information. All performances begin at 7.30pm.
