The Slipper And The Rose

THIS is a show that the Birkenhead Operatic Society Trust should boast about – it sums up their amazing legacy of producing shows that can take on anything in the West End. This pre-Christmas production is sparkling with a cast who relish every minute they are on the stage. It has everything for the family; a delightful Cinderella (Melanie Isaac) and a dignified Prince Edward played by Tony Prince – how apt. It is an ensemble piece so there isn’t time nor space to pick out other individuals.

BOST really do deliver when they take on a project and the costumes and stage sets are first class with a great transformation scene. The choreography and whimsical songs, such as Once I Was Loved and Protocoligorically Correct are relayed with real finesse and typical vibrant enthusiasm.

You have choruses of ministers, courtiers, servants guards and villagers, mice dancers French children, page boys, ballet troupe.

There is something very charming and innocent and … beautiful about people who wear their heart on their sleeves and perform to such dazzling standards.

Something to sing about, BOST – a truly WONDERFUL Wirral success story.
