WOW committee members and supporters were in the audience for the Southampton opening of Sunset Boulevard with former WOW member, Matt Barrow, in the cast (far left of photo above). He is swing and assistant dance captain for this production which has received rave reviews.
Matt’s extensive theatre credits include Mamma Mia, The Wizard of Oz, Merrily We Roll Along and Sweet Charity in the West End; Chicago (Curve, Leicester) as well as touring productions of Kiss Me Kate, Mary Poppins, Fame and Miss Saigon.
After the show, Matt came to see the Weymouth party. Among those he spoke to were WOW president, Janet Stockley and committee member, Chris Taylor who had organised the trip for her theatre club. WOW Chairman, Alan McKechan, said “It is definitely worth a journey to see this sensational production. It’s superbly staged with powerful performances and the orchestra’s rendition of the Lloyd Webber score is also outstanding.”
The run at the Mayflower theatre ends on Saturday 20 January but the tour continues until the end of April.
