The Rocky Monster Show
22nd - 24th June 2017
BATS Review
Billed as a riotous mix of the Addams Family, Young Frankenstein and Phantom of the Opera, with Rebecca and The Rocky Horror Show thrown in for good measure, this show had all the trademarks of those iconic characters which AKT made short work of, resulting in a fabulous show that was obviously enjoyed by a capacity audience.

Directors Lorraine McLoughlin and Ruth Kay have worked the youngsters hard to come up with this polished performance and with the music safe in the hands of musical director, Ruth Kay, we were treated to some cracking songs, with a mix of past hits appropriate to the piece thrown in making the score complete.

Narrators Kieron and Cameron McLoughlin kept the pace moving with their comical interjections with a slight nod to Morecambe and Wise (or was it Waldorf and Statler).

Libby Hill was strong in her role as Mrs Danvers and was complemented by a confident Jensen Kay as Igor and Molly Wilsdon as Professor Fenton. Bringing Elvis to life was Charles McGreavey who played the King to perfection.

Sam Fullarton as Dan Stoker and Rachel Greenhalgh and Rebecca Shelley both shone as they made their way through the story, finally making their way into the castle and unveiling the unusual goings on.

There were many cameo role, too many to mention, but all played well which, along with creative choreography by Hannah Feakin and Bethany Bentham, culminated in an all round enjoyable production which was clearly enjoyed by the talented youngsters on stage.
