“In the lead roles of Sandy and Danny, Sophie Morris and Samuel Armstrong achieve a nice chemistry, forming a focal point amid a lot of stage business and winning audience sympathy.

‘Sophie Morris’ performances just keep on getting better. She now has an impressive voice range and stylistic range, going effortlessly from the belle canto required in Dvorak’s Rusalka’s Song to the Moon and Puccini’s O mio babbino caro to Bernstein’s soaring Somewhere, Webber’s guttural Memory and Kander and Ebb’s raunchy All That Jazz. Morris is definitely the ascendant star.’ - Marian Poole, Otago Daily Times, 2016 – from “Brass shines and voices sparkle in firmament”
