Thanks to Patsy Everett who wrote this review of the

Youth Theatre's recent successful production of

"The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe"


On a cold very windy night in February the Youth Theatre of Rustington Players put on The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe. A very ambitious production one would think, but Director, Claire Cossins pulled it off with aplomb.


To a full house, the cast of children, ranging in age from seven to eleven years, many performing for the first time, came on the stage with confidence and looking as if they were thoroughly enjoying themselves. 


I took two little guests with me and their comments were,          “ amazing, I really enjoyed it. It was just like the film. “

They particularly liked the lion who was really funny and the Queen who was really bossy!


All the children were excellent and showed real promise.   

Toby King, who played Professor Kirk and Aslan the lion    really played both parts with real flair.

The Queen, Holly Burton played her part really well, royally storming across the stage forcing her personality on her subjects!


The audience lapped the performance up, cheering and clapping. On such an inhospitable night it was great so many people came along to support the children.


A lot of praise should go to Claire. So much hard work and time goes into these productions, all in her free time and for the love of pulling off a good performance. You should be very proud Claire of what you have achieved and proud of the children. Well done.


We must also remember the crew behind the scenes, the bar staff, the raffle organiser and contributors and box office, without whom these productions could not take place.
