NODA review of Coram Boy

by Richard Fitt 26th October 2016 Even though I see it has had good critically acclaimed runs on both Broadway and The West End I must admit to my shame I had never even heard of Coram Boy before I was asked to review this production, so it was with […]

NODA review of Silly Cow

by Richard Fitt Being the gold standard for amateur theatre in the region, it is hard to fault Sharnbrook Mill Theatre productions, and taking on Ben Elton’s ‘Silly Cow’ on a hot steamy night in September was no exception. I had forgotten what an over-the-top silly script this is, typical Elton: satirical, […]

NODA review of Forbidden Broadway

BRIGHT LIGHTS OF BROADWAY SHINE FOR SHARNBROOK!

NODA review of Romeo & Juliet

Review by Richard Fitt 18th March 2016 Romeo and Juliet, perhaps the most famous love story of all time. Everybody knows it and it has of course been performed countless thousands of times over the last 400 years. So what to do with it to make it fresh for your […]

NODA review of Merrily We Roll Along

By Richard Fitt on 12th June 2015 Sharnbook Mill Theatre are a group with a high reputation and high expectations to live up to. I was therefore intrigued to find out how they tacked a show, albeit by the legendary Stephen Sondheim and George Furth, which when launched in 1981, […]

NODA review of Miss Saigon: School Edition

Performance: 19th November 2014 Review by Keith Pendall Sharnbrook Mill theatre is always an interesting place to visit, as the company seem able to adapt any project they undertake to fit this charming venue. A full house for this school edition of, in my opinion, one of the most touching […]

NODA review of Macbeth

Performance: 17th September 2014 Review by Keith Pendall I have to be honest and say that I have never really been a fan of The Bard and his works. On arriving at the Mill Theatre I met the director Barry Thompson who assured me that this was a completely different […]

Sardines review of Company

Performance: 23rd November 2013 Review by Alex Wood First, a declaration of interest. I know this group fairly well, especially as one of my daughters has done shows with them. She was in this show. Sharnbrook is a very good group but having seen most of Sondheim’s shows – this […]
