FOLLOWING on from the success with ‘A Talent to Amuse’ in Mojacar a few weeks ago, Sweet Charity performed another of these popular shows in Bar Trinidad, Arboleas.
Sweet Charity raised €440 which will go to Walk for Life, Puppy Rescue and PAWS.
Oscar, Sweet Charity’s Mascot, was a very happy cat.
Roger Dickman, perhaps better known as lead tenor with the Voices of Almanzora, opened the show with Peter Cooks famous “I always wanted to be a Judge” sketch.
It would have been easy to do an impersonation of Peter Cook but Roger resisted and made the sketch his own.
Following Roger, Janet Franklin told us the story of frustrated alcoholic Susan, the Vicar’s wife in Alan Bennett’s “Bed amongst the Lentils.”
As we have come to expect from such an accomplished actress it was a flawless performance.
With just the right combination of lunacy, actions and voices to match all the characters Crispin Welby told us the story of Private Nottac Lue.
It is not easy to play someone 100 years old but Jacqueline Welby brought the character of Violet to life in Alan Bennett’s “Waiting for the Telegram.”
One minute Jacqueline had the audience laughing and the next close to tears as she took them on Violet’s roller coaster journey as she gradually succumbed to dementia.
Once again the audience showed their appreciation in their applause. Not to be outdone, Crispin took to floor again and gave us the Jonathan Miller version of “The Death of Lord Nelson.”
Using the limited floor space to full effect Crispin took us above and below decks with this very funny sketch.
It was the ideal end to a lovely afternoon.
For those of you who missed this one don’t despair as in the not too distant future, Sweet Charity will be taking the show to the New Kimrick in Mojacar.
