I CAN think of no better way to escape the dreary, depressing weather for a couple of hours than to experience the charming musical production of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers currently visiting us here in Bournemouth.
Starring Sam Attwater (Dancing On Ice and EastEnders) as Adam and Helena Blackman (BBC's How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?) as Milly, this Western themed musical is sure to put a smile on your face.
Although there were a few instances of microphone malfunctions, the talented cast and crew professionally delivered an entertaining story of seven brothers tamed and educated by one strong-willed independent woman.
Although each and every one of these performers impressed in their own roles, the shining star was Helena Blackman who portrayed the many layers of Milly's character and whose musical talent wowed the audience.
The brothers and their brides provided many comical moments and portrayed an array of talent in their roles. Of course, you cannot see this show without being captivated by the dancing talents of the cast and recognising the amazing choreography of Emmy nominated Patti Colombo.
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers makes for a fun and entertaining night out and the cast and crew truly deserved the cheers and rapturous applause that met the conclusion of their performance.
