I was very fortunate to be in the audience on Thursday night at Halifax Playhouse for a performance of Miss Saigon, the musical. So many young people these days get a bad press but it was a joy to see Halifax Amateur Theatre Youth perform to a packed house. The war in Vietnam is not an easy subject to make into a good show but all involved with this production are to be praised. The singing and acting were superb and the participants were given a spontaneous standing ovation at the end.I don’t think any of us in the audience wanted to let them go. So a huge thank you to all those involved, from the parents who would have taken the students to rehearsals, the musical director who taught the songs and the musicians who accompanied them, all the people involved in the staging of the show, but mostly to the students themselves who must have put in many, many hours of rehearsals and practices to put on such a professional show. An incredible amount of hard work must have gone into producing such a fabulous show. So , thank you, it was worth it.
We saw the stars of the future
My husband and I went to The Playhouse last week to see “Miss Saigon”, performed by Halifax Amateur Youth Theatre. It was absolutely fantastic, they got a standing ovation. We have seen “Miss Saigon” numerous times at different theatres and I can honestly say last week’s performance was just as good. I can see various members of the cast appearing in the West End in London in future years.
