NODA review of "Beauty And The Beast" by representative Gerry Branton

Written by the director, this 'Beauty' had a distinctly local background. It united Bristol and the sailing of the Matthew with its nearest neighbour Wales, with the prospect of one day joining up with a bridge, or two! Severe limitations backstage never deter this enterprising club and this year was no exception with some splendid sets. Master John`s house was a masterpiece with exquisite cloths as was the Rose Garden, fully complemented by the floral quartet of  Rose, Iris, Daisy and Marigold and a charming mini-troupe of fuschias. The principal roles were well portrayed with strong characterisation and voice from the Beast, and good support from the First Mate, the two Welsh retainers and the wonderful fairies, Verity and Malevolent. Dialogue tended to flag at times but the musical interludes were well received with atmospheric-type accompaniment finding instant appeal with younger members of the audience. Lighting was effective and congratulations on the quality of the sound system, enabling us to hear so well throughout. Last but my no means least were the superb costumes, designed and made by Jean Goddard and her team, surpassing even previous years' achievements.

Well done Ecumaniacs!
