Pictures from Tideswell Male Voice Choir's 'Showstoppers Spectacular' evening of mucial theatre, held at Buxton Opera House.

For their fifth annual visit to the Buxton Opera House, Tideswell Male Voice Choir staged a Showstoppers Spectacular, an evening of musical theatre, with guest stars from the West End and a spotlight on fresh local talent. The evening began with Cabaret, before the local Youth Chorus presented a selection of songs from Oliver, with solo spots for Matthew and Emma Hopkins and Grace Dowding. It was a first appearance on the Buxton stage for Helen Owen and Vicky Eckanoye, both known to Tideswell musical director Dennis Kay as young performers and well established in the West End. Helens numbers included Somewhere Over The Rainbow while Vicky sang No Good Deed from Wicked in her set.


Tideswell Male Voice Choir were in the spotlight again with dynamic performances of Rhythm of Life (Sweet Charity) and New York, New York. It also marked the culmination of Dennis Kays Come and Sing project to introduce a new group of men from the Peak District to choral singing. This was their stage debut singing Youll Never Walk Alone and a polished performance it was, too.


The second half of the show featured musical highlights from Les Miserables, with the entire company and guest spots from Nick Bennett and Tim Pocock. Other highlights included Helena Says marvellous portrayal of Mde Thenardier and Megan Kelly as Young Cosette.


This was another memorable evening from the Tideswell Male Voice Choir, concluding with a well deserved standing ovation.
