2022's Ruddygore


"gleeful fun, glorious music and great character acting. Quite simply, it is impossible not to like this production...a classic escapist night of fun"

Kevin Anderson, Sussex Express

"...the best and funniest production of Ruddygore that the society has ever put on." Julian Dale

"Sullivan's numbers are rapturously encored by the singers and the droll sallies of Gilbert's dialogue and lyrics are full of appreciative mirth. The voices of the ensemble are superb in their choral work."

Jack Harris

Eastbourne Herald on 2021's The Pirates of Penzance


"fresh and funny and full of great little touches."

"every single actor fits the role, nay, inhabits the part"

"Lizzie Lawton’s Frederic is engaging, bright-eyed and lovable, with just enough piratical brio. Their vocals are lyrical and clear."

"Richard Woodall’s Pirate King commands his motley crew with extravagant bluster and with a magnificent baritone voice"

Eastbourne Herald on 2019's The Gondoliers: 


"An engaged, likeable chorus brings a wonderful flurry of life to Dance a Cachucha" 


"Adrian Samuel and Christopher the lovable Gondolier brothers, play off each other skilfully, and Adrian’s Take a Pair of Sparkling Eyes is a fabulous vocal highlight."


"Paul Eccles matchless as a kind of camp Roi-Soleil Duke, formidable Duchess Alison King, with the stunning voice of Rowan Stanfield as a quite haughty daughter Casilda"
