Comox Valley musical theatre ‘astounding’

Dear editor,

CYMC's opening night performance of Shrek the Musical was astounding on many levels.

Dear editor,

CYMC’s opening night performance of Shrek the Musical was astounding on many levels.

The quality of the acting from such young performers, the voices, but most of all the fact that once again they managed to put the whole thing together in such a very short time period. The show was entertaining, fun, professional and captivating.

Kudos to everyone involved.

We are so fortunate to have this venue for young performers to craft their art. After last year’s performance of Les Mis, one couldn’t help but wonder if CYMC could put on a show that matched that one — but they have!

Quite honestly, we are happy we have moved into lighter content.  While Les Mis was fabulous, all the interpretations were leaving us feeling Tres Mis.

CYMC has kicked off the summer theatre season in grand style and we anticipate the upcoming performances of Little Mermaid and 13!

What a great community!

J. Hamilton,
