Bonnie & Clyde – Wilburton Theatre Group’s latest show, is about such a well known story it barely needs an introduction. What is less known is that there is a musical about the story, which follows the couple from childhood through to their grizzly end (spoiler alert!). The set is of a minimal design, but there is a great on-stage 1930’s style car, and newspaper print from the time decorates the stairs at the back of the stage.
Bonnie & Clyde is a violent story, which obviously means that there is lots of blood and guns. To chime with the minimalist theme, the guns are wooden cut-outs, but are made to the exact size and shape of the originals.
What really sets this show apart is the quality of the singing. All of the cast have done really well with what are very difficult songs to sing. I was very impressed by the harmonising in the multiple duets throughout the show.
If you are interested in seeing the show, you may be out of luck as all of the tickets are sold out online, however there are one or two available on the door if you fancy taking a chance. For now, you can see the photos from the show’s dress rehearsal below:
