Went to see Southport Amatuer Dramatic's "The Secret Garden" last night. It was good, The Kids were very good and the lead roles ( Lily, Martha, Dickon, Archibald, Dr. Craven and Ben) Were Excellent, the supporting cast were mixed, some decent singers and some who need some work. The staging was simple, but effective, with suggestive sets and a screen at the back to suggest where the scenes were being held.
The acting was good, with some really sweet scenes between Dickon & Mary.
All in all a decent performance, although very very amateurish in places. (mostly to do with the set changing and chorus)
