Anyone for Breakfast PDF Print E-mail

"Once again my wife & I enjoyed a theatre night with the Centenary Group. We attended Friday night's performance, thoroughly enjoy ourselves and shared laughs with the audience. It was a very funny script, well cast, well played and well directed ... We look forward to attending more Centenary Theatre productions next year" Malcom & Eileen MacLean (Audience members) - 5 December 2003

"All the elements are there - some nice characterisations, a well-designed set and some great costuming - but it just seems under-rehearsed ... That being said from a reviewer's point of view, the success or failure of a production largely rests upon whether the audience enjoys it, and the comic situations certainly got plenty of laughs from the full house the night I went. The British farce, no matter what the critic thinks of it, is always a crowd pleaser." Andrea Carne (Review, Stagediary.com) - 30 November 2003

Our Town PDF Print E-mail

"My wife and I were in the audience last Friday night for Centenary Theatre Group's production of Our Town. We very much enjoyed the play and I think Thornton Wilder would have praised your production too. We have a video of the old film starring William Holden and Martha Scott and allowing for the differences between stage and screen, your production was better. Your Stage Manager was excellent and he was well supported by many other lead players in your cast. ... We look forward to attending more of your productions in future." Malcolm & Eileen MacLean (Audience members) - 10 October 2003 

"Theatre has two hooks to lure you in: a good play and a good production. At a pinch, either should do, but what the audience hopes for is a good production of a good play. And that’s what it gets in Our Town  .... Finney has done the play justice in his direction of a large cast with a considerable bounty of talent.   Remarkably, on this small stage, the 14 actors work the space without it ever seeming crowded, and with a number of standout performances. ... See it, and be touched." - Ann Ring (Review, Stagediary.com) - 20 September 2003

The Children's Hour PDF Print E-mail

 "A feature of The Children's Hour is the performance of the seven young cast members who play students ... of the more mature plays ... all provide excellent moments. It's a long show ... yet it moves very quickly ... the third act is particularly gripping as the awful results of the lies and accompanying innuendo become tragically obvious ..." - John Algate (Review, Stagediary.com) - 2 August 2003 ******
