Hairspray

First time crewing with a relatively new company.  Lots of scenery, some rather large and cumbersome, however in true HUSC style it was managed and the show was a great success. Well done to Encore here’s to many more brilliant shows.

Crazy For you

HMS gave an excellent, well received performance.  Great dance routines and singing. Good show to crew with extra tasks to be done live on stage, a clock that needed to drop at exactly the right time !

Musicality

HMS celebrated 80 years of the society with an excellent show which included numbers from Miss Siagon, Sister Act, Matilda, Newsies and a rapturous rendition of the numbers from the musical We will Rock You. There was lots of singing, dancing and all done on a very simple set with scenes projected on the back screen. Small effects like a flying in guitar for the finale and a member of the cast playing his electric guitar added to the whole dynamic ending.

Oliver

Hillingdon presented an excellent show in March at the Hayes Theatre.  It was a brilliant set with lots to do and the only thing Iain couldn’t control as Stage Manager was the dogs tail that kept wagging every time it saw it’s owner. It was such a great show that it was nominated for a NODA award for Best Musical.  Andy also a member of HUSC played a really mean Bill Sykes.

Beauty and the Beast

Hillingdon Musical Society have once again done an outstanding job, this time with the stage adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, and are one of the first amateur company’s to perform it. As you can see from the photo gallery above, the set and costumes looked amazing. Many of the audience said it was as good as a west end show. Saturday evening’s performance, to a full house was received with a standing ovation, one which was well deserved . Hillingdon Musical Society have announced that their next show in September will be Fame followed by Thoroughly Modern Millie in March, 2011.

The Ass and the Philosophers

HUSC were asked by the Argosy Players to supply a small crew (Chris, Iain, Jev, Simon) to help them with their get in at the Play House in the West End March 2010. Sir David Jason’s production company, in association with Channel Five approached Argosy to be a part of a pilot episode of a new show where amateur companies are given a show, (The Ass and the Philosophers)and just three weeks to rehearse, and then the task of staging the show in the West End for one night. Channel Five are due to air the show in late May. So keep your eye’s peeled for your fellowHUSC member’s.
