IT IS not often you get an amateur society performing a World Premiere of a brand new musical, but that is exactly what happened at the Barn Theatre on Wednesday September 12th.

Seaford Musical Theatre’s latest production We Built This City is a rock musical with a touch of romance written and directed by one of their own members Paula Woolven.

It is a tribute to rock music with a strong story line and features rockers of all kinds, glam rockers, punks, hardcore, folk rockers and old timers.

Full of familiar songs the show was very professional and polished with excellent choreography.

Jenny Humphries as Dusty the leader of the Old Timers has a beautiful voice and Rob Willis was excellent as Johnny B.Goode, son of the leader of the hard rockers Alderman Goode, played by John Walsh.

All the performances were good but I have to mention a seven-year-old boy Cameron Sinclair who stole the show as a tiny Elvis with his dancing.

Remember he started in Seaford when he wins the X-Factor which I am sure he is destined to do.

What made this show so polished was the live musicians – all experts in their own field guitarists Geoff Smith and Max Gardner, Tony Still on drums and pianist Phil McMullen.

There is certainly some talent in our area and I hope people appreciate it. This was some show and Seaford rocked for four nights.
