An absolutely incredible original show. Hilarious, well-timed dialogue mixed with sharp, stunning vocals. A brilliant adaptation of the source material and a wholesome message. Each and every character was perfectly cast and held their own fabulously, resulting in no weak links whatsoever. Highlight for me was the New Girl - sounding absolutely amazing on those high vocal parts! Would thoroughly recommend.

Watched this fabulous show live twice and loved every second- watched it again on line and loved it all over again! Every person - cast, crew and band gave 110% and it showed! It was laugh out-loud funny with catchy songs and amazing vocals - this show deserves a wider audience and wider acclaim. You should all be very proud of yourselves! 5 stars for sure!

Was browsing online shows to watch and came across this one which grabbed my attention - it was absolutely free to watch on demand and was definitely worth seeing! It's the kind of show I would have paid to see in person so it's a shame the company couldn't get to Edinburgh this year.
It's a very funny and well acted little show, with nods to many other musicals. I enjoyed the silly script and ham acting and thought all of the ensemble cast did a brilliant job.
Hopefully this theatre group will be able to visit the fringe in person next year to perform - I would love to catch them and will keep an eye out.
This wee show is streaming FOR FREE and you should absolutely give it a watch!

"They need guidance and girl power to tackle the unknown."

THIS SHOW WAS A CERTIFIED BOP. I didn't realise it was a musical when I booked my ticket, but I am overjoyed that it was. The opening song was an incredible start to the show, and it only just got better from there.
If Heathers, Mean Girls, Six and Mathilda had an adopted child, it would be this show. The music and lyrics were phenomenal and I had to look it up to see if this was a professionally written show. It sounds like one of the greats, so this show is an instant classic for me.
The choreography and set transitions were slick and I like how the cast never broke out of character for a second. Even when they were in the background wheeling around huge flats, they were acting, which is what a great piece of theatre is all about. Never breaking the illusion. Using these transitions to tell the audience more about their characters is a genius theatrical device that I wish more productions would take advantage of. I'm so glad the finer details of this show had been consider, and all of the hard work absolutely paid off.
Okay, now for the bit I'm most excited about - THE. CAST.
Every single person on that stage performed with an electric energy that was incredibly contagious. From the dialogue, to the singing and dancing, each person had a unique flair to them and each person had their chance to shine.
The Headmistress (George Marlin) was ICONIC. His charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent served him well in this role, and was a definite stand-out. I was very impressed by his commitment to the part and his line-delivery was spot-on every time. Marlin had a similar energy as Joe Walker in Starkid's A Very Potter Musical when he plays Umbridge, and if you haven't seen that show, I promise you, it's a huge compliment. The way he spoke to his assistant Jenny (Daisy Fox) was fast and witty, and I think the two made a great little double act in the office. (Go to admit, I gasped at Jenny's big reveal at the end. Now that's good writing!)
The Head Girl (Lydia Duval) was exceptional and commanded the stage every time she stepped across it. Not only was she visually striking, but her vocals were amazing. She looked so comfortable in the role, the sign of a natural talent. Her performance was greatly complimented by the fun, relatable and absolute joy that is Dalia Kay as the new girl. Good lord, does she has a set of lungs on her. Those riffs? Get it gal! Kay and Duval were an absolute dream team, and I have to mention that my mom got emotional during their rather intense battle of the vocals as they sang it out against each other. She was in awe, and I've got to admit, I was too. For a 50 minute show, the company packed a lot in, but they made it work.
The Nerds (Lucy Murphy and Alice O'Duffy) and the Posh Plastics (Nathalie Hall and Tally Soames) were fantastic, again, with their line-delivery, comedic timing, and some of Soames' facial expressions really cracked me up. She did not hold back.
The Goth (Cara Staniforth) has a special place in my heart, as a goth in the theatre industry myself. I loved her performance and I think she really sold it with her hunched stance, piercing gaze and spooky disposition. And we stan a queen who can make cyanide.
The Rival Headmaster (Caitlin Doyle) was another stand-out performer for me. From the accent, to the wig, I felt her performance was larger than life and her sidekick Daryl (Kyle Cook) was hilarious and I'm a huge fan of the sweater and socks combo.
The team of talented musicians and writers behind the songs deserve the highest of compliments. The fresh and current references, the homages to existing musical songs and the range of tempos and backings were superb. I would listen to this soundtrack all the time, it genuinely slaps.
The directors and the rest of the company should be incredibly proud of themselves as the show was consistently visually interesting and the formations on stage were never simple or boring. I just loved how fun this show was and I did wonder a few years back if St. Trinian's would ever work on stage, and this group of insanely talented individuals have just proved that it can. It definitely can.
This is a message to all the people involved, who made this wonderful show - WELL. DONE. There is so much potential for this show to go further and I hope you all continue to work on it and make it longer. The drama, the gossip, the music, the arguments, it could truly be explosive and I think this particular cast and crew have the brains and the talent to make it happen. I would pay so much money to see this in-person. It looked like a lot of fun to be in as well, so if you ever need an extra character, please let me know!
Girls of St Trinian's absolutely slayed. 5 stars!
