On a Carousel

Amateur Theatre?
Ealing has a theatre called the Questors which we visited this weekend and the production was of a Carousel, four points
1) Something at London’s Schools must be going well as it was a very professional production performed by School students aged 18 and younger.
2) Carousel (and some other musicals of similar vintage) is a much darker deeper piece than a lot of people may realise – I don’t think that present musical theatre has such depth
3) It is worth going out and seeing real people do things cinema, tv etc. is too sanitised.
4) London is (largely) an integrated multi racial city that has a lot of positive things going for it
