A nervous wreck!”

  1. I saw last night’s showing of the Leg-End and must say its one of the best-ever performances we’ve seen from Hedon Drama Group. The kids will love it – and there’s enough naughtiness implied to keep us adults entertained too.

    Dave Jordan was marvellous as the Dame Mrs Boobyridge. You can imagine that he would thrive working a larger stage with a larger, louder, more interactive and naughtier audience – the naughtier the better! But the performance of the night must go to Cat Jordan Webster who, as Billy Bones and Long John Silver, threw herself into the roles with full heart, gusto and cutlass! Fantastic, enjoyable characters! Long John was far-too-good a character, and not ‘nasty’ enough to deserve our Booooos – but a brilliant part played to the full by Cat (who also helped write the show along with writer/director Anne Gwinnell).

    The choreography was good throughout too – with a hugely entertaining and often-danced short hornpipe! The slow motion, strobe fight scene was really quite funny! And I’m so glad that they didn’t grab adults (i.e. me!) out of the audience to take part in the ‘big fish, little fish’ dance at the end – it was done at a fast furious pace that would have left me breathless!

    If you hadn’t planned to see this year’s Panto – then you must change your mind! It’s definitely worth seeing!

    There are shows on today at 2:30pm and 7:30pm. See it!
