Guest Review - The Fire Starter

We've had a lovely review from Thursday's performance of The Fire Starter. Mike Kaloski-Naylor, the Projects Co-ordinator from Theatreworks was a Bradon Forest Theatre first timer and emailed in these kind words after the show:

"The pre-show energy of the young audience was clear, but they were definitely a theatre audience, feeling ownership of their performance space and excitement at the show they were about to see. However, this did not stop the venue from feeling open and welcoming to visitors, such as myself, entering for the first time. Instead it made the space feel alive and energised, something often lacking in theatre spaces.

During the show there were whispered comments and giggles, but these were because of the show, not despite it, and there was hush when the action required it. This is a venue and an audience who know and demand quality theatre and in Big State, they had a company which could more than deliver.

In fact I can’t imagine a better audience to join for this show. Big State’s confidence, talent and theatrical expertise fed perfectly into, and off, their reactions and energy while the jokes hit and rippled through us with wonderful regularity and effect. The show was excellent, and my enjoyment of it enhanced by the audience’s enthusiasm and engagement.

I am absolutely looking forward to my next visit and will be encouraging others to do the same."

Thanks Mike! Glad you enjoyed the show... you, and everyone else is welcome back any time! In fact... we have our week of C18th Farce next week!
