REVIEW: The Vicar of Dibley, Cromer & Sheringham Operatic & Dramatic Society

The latest production at Sheringham Little Theatre was an out standing and hilarious performance of the Vicar of Dibley.
The play was adapted from the original TV series and was faithfully followed by the director Ruth Elliott, with the individual actors making it their own.
The theatre was packed and the audience was treated to an evening of full-on laughter. The story was centred on the arrival of a woman vicar, Geraldine Grainger (Laura Williamson) to a small conventional village, the upheaval that causes and the unfolding of the blossoming romance between the eccentric young verger, Alice (Joanna Maxwell) and Hugo (Tom Denny) the son of the parish council chairman David Horton (Graham Blyth).
All the favourite characters were there and so excellently portrayed, the audience could be forgiven for thinking they were watching the TV set.
Laura Williamson could be Dawn French as Geraldine, so excellent was her performance. Joanna Maxwell was a much prettier Alice with all the quirks of the original, Tom Denney a much more handsome Hugo. Frank Pickle (Greg Pope), Jim Trott (Martin Howard) and Letitia Cropley (Thelma Torr) were all true to their characters.
A special mention for Robin Taylor who came on and played an excellent Owen Newitt after only two days’ notice, What a comic performance.
The Cromer and Sheringham Operatic and Dramatic Society (CSODS) never fails to give their audience an outstanding performance every time.
