At first blush the challenge to create a musical about sideline parents at a soccer match with a cast of just four would seem a huge challenge.
Yet from a ten minute seed of a musical, a full length production has evolved with some nice tunes, more than a few laughs and the odd tug on the heart strings.
The obvious gags are ably exploited; getting lost finding this week’s match, parents behaving badly and complaints about bad refereeing.
