USHERS: Review Roundup

Friday, SEPTEMBER 8TH 2017


We’re half way through our run of the stagiest show in town, USHERS: The Front of House Musical! We thought it was about time we gave you a look at our latest full-scale production and shared some of our FABULOUS 5 star reviews!

“Following a working shift in the lives of the stagiest people in the theatre – the front of house staff, portraying the hilarious, ridiculous and frequently moving stories of ice-cream and programme sellers who dare to dream…”

On Monday we opened the doors for the #stagey smash hit ‘OOPS! I Did it Again!’ With their smiles painted on, the Ushers welcomed in our fabulous audience members for a wonderful opening night. We know just how much people are loving it, because they keep telling us! So have a read through and a flick through the gallery and hopefully we’ll see you before the end of our run at The Maddermarket Theatre!

“One of my favourite nights at the theatre for a LONG time!”

“Ushers is just such a wonderful heart-warming, incredibly funny, uplifting and all-round happy show! You leave feeling brilliant! I cannot recommend this Sound Ideas production enough. The cast blew me away and really work so well as a team….they are so believable.”

USHERS: What a brilliant and utterly hilarious show!

Everything from the casting, singing, acting and movement to the lighting, sound, band, staging, set and props was just bang on! Well done to everyone involved in this awesome show. My only advice to people going to see it is to wear waterproof mascara as I managed to cry most of mine off!

Just been to opening night of USHERS. Funny, sweet, clever and touching. Bravo to the talented cast. Loved it.

Ushers: Well done on another excellent show. There are so many clever musical theatre references throughout the lyrics, music, choreography and even the lighting. The cast were superb……

I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed Ushers last night –

it has the hallmark Sound Ideas innovative staging and creativity which we’ve come to expect and love! All parts were played superbly with some amazing solos. It’s a hilarious show which I would recommend to everyone.

Album of the week!

PIPPIN! New Broadway Cast!

This week’s Album of the Week is the highly addictive and fabulous musical from Stephen Schwartz, Pippin! The New Broadway Cast Recording to be precise! Pippin has been revived all over the world since it’s very first outing, but we think this is our favourite recording of the show. The smooth vocals of Patina Miller are something to behold and we just can’t get enough. Our absolute favourite is the opening number, so make sure you check it out and download it today!
