By Chris Harriott and Dennis Watkins. Normanhurst Uniting Church Musical Society (NSW). May 27 – June 11, 2011.
Affectionately known by the hard to pronunce acronym ‘NUCMS,’ this company has staged 43 musicals since 1975 and all have been written overseas.
Their first Australian musical presentation is Beach Blanket Tempest.
The surf rock musical is a send up of the ‘incy wincy’ bikini films of the sixties with a pop score loosely based on Shakespeare’s classic.
I am the agent for the show, and have seen several productions over the years, but this one was one of the strongest.
