After watching the show on opening night, the Southern Daily Echo have written this review:
THIS was a musical treat, full of tap-along-melodies, in which every song was sheer pleasure to hear. The whole company number of the Black Hills was outstanding, performed in lamplight in the auditorium. Charlotte Barham’s (Calamity) deeply heartfelt Secret Love beautifully balanced Rob Talbot’s (Wild Bill) commanding Higher Than a Hawk. Congratulations to Neil Streeter for excellent musical direction.
Calamity impetuously promises to bring the gun-slinging, gold-digging, poker-playing Deadwood residents the darling of the cigarette cards, Adelaide Adams, to entertain them. As usual, she courts disaster when she brings back Adelaide’s maid instead. John Parker excelled as the despairing landlord of the Golden Garter; Paul Marsh (Francis Fryer) had the audience hooting with laughter at his impersonation of an actress; Ann Sinclair gave a delightful cameo as Adelaide whilst Louise Ellison (Katie) charmed us throughout.
