Just So , November 2014 Review.

Wednesday 4th March 2015

In November 2014 Callum played the Cooking Stove in London College of Music's warmly Received Production of " Just So" By Stiles and Drewe. 

Review by Musical Theatre Review:

Just So – London College of Music

Georgina Louise Jackson was one of several students to impress in the London College of Music production of Just So at the Watermans Theatre, London
 

Just So was performed by London College of Music third-year students at Watermans Theatre, Brentford, London.

This early Stiles and Drewe musical, a contemporary take on Rudyard Kipling’s much-loved Just So stories, brought the best out of a particularly likeable bunch of students from the musical theatre arm of the University of West London, just as the same year’s Alfie the Musical, with an entirely different cast, did the previous week in Ealing.

First written in 1984 and much revised since, Just So has been a long-standing success on both sides of the pond for the team that has gone on to give us Betty Blue Eyes and Soho Cinders.

It follows the journey of the Elephant’s Child (Kevin Fagan, making the most of his best Act II solo ‘Does the Moment Ever Come?’) and his fear-of-flying companion, the Kolokolo Bird (the dainty Georgina Louise Jackson, with a deep, clear voice and terrific poise).

They are guided and watched over by the Eldest Magician (Mikey Wooster, confident from the outset), who acts as narrator. He takes them through many adventures with some weird and wonderful creatures, a quest that takes them to the banks of the great, grey-green Limpopo River and a dangerous encounter with Jack Furssedon-Coates as a greedy Crocodile.

Although intended for children, the humanism and moral reasoning of the yarns give them universal appeal in this charming, gently humorous piece directed with pace and style by Judith Paris.

She certainly got everything out of her cast in which, apart from those already mentioned, Justyn Huntley, as an extravagantly effeminate Leopard, and Naomi Ellen, bang on with the accent as the Parsee Cook, particularly impressed.

Nobody was less than good and some were very good indeed, as were the Alfie cast. There seems to be greater strength-in-depth among this year’s crop of students.

Benny Bright made a fair-dinkum Kangaroo, Callum Rhys Griffiths a very Welsh malfunctioning Cooking Stove, a sort of Aga Khan’t (sorry about that one), Zak Hamdia a forceful East End Rhino and bouncy Ceirios Ann Davies’ Zebra made a delightful double act with the taller Megan Yates’ Giraffe.

Costumes (Mike Leopold) and choreography (Marcia Carr) were top-notch and the band of three under MD Richard...
