Show Stoppers, 2011

Tonight's Showstoppers Concert is a mixture of some of the best bits from the great musicals and films with a hint of TV comedy thrown in for good measure. It is an opportunity for the cast of Longford On Stage to pick their own favourites and perform them to the best of their abilities. Our enthusiastic members vary in age from 8 to, - well over 21 - and all have one thing in common: to perform to audiences, enjoy themselves and demonstrate their individual talents.
Here at Longford On Stage, we always encourage new talent to come along and join with us and if there are any budding singers, dancers or actors that would like to have a go, then please speak to one of the cast members.
With cast availability and clashing dates during the year, we have had to reschedule the show and we apologise if this has caused inconvenience to anyone. Hopefully these dates in that "no man's land" between Christmas and New Year will serve to give that much needed entertainment in this normally quiet time and brighten up at least two of those cold winter evenings.
Our thanks go to Sarah Stringer for her work with the dance routines. It seems ages since our last show and Sarah has shown dedicaton beyond the call of duty to keep the momentum going. Having a baby in the process is just one of those things she has taken in her stride! Watch for the new member in 4 years time!
This evening to make sure you are ready to face the cold journey home, we are providing a hot drink and either a hot dog or burger during the interval for just £1. Please enjoy the show and thank you for your continued support of Longford On Stage.
All that remains now is for me to thank all the cast and crew for their enthusiasm and ask you all to sit back, sing and dance along if you like and enjoy the great songs from the shows as we present:-
