‘Was immaculately cast, farce is notoriously difficult to pull off, the witty, fast and repetitive dialogue needs actors who are at the top of their game. This was a brilliant production, very much appreciated by sell out audiences. It was one of the most enjoyable plays, not just at the Woolstore but also at Salisbury Playhouse, I have seen in a long time.

‘The Woolstore Bowl for the Winning Play that will go forward to the Mercia Division Quarter Finals in Wootton Bassett at the end of the month, was another David Tristram comedy ‘What’s For Pudding’ performed by the Woolstore Country Theatre and directed by Derek Miles. Ms Woolley described this as a light, brittle comedy with a well- rehearsed and confident cast.
Derek Miles has a history of picking the right play for a festival, this was witty, fast paced and perfectly cast and the audience loved it!’

‘CODFORD’S Woolstore Theatre was magically transformed into Sherwood Forest for nine packed performances of Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood by Alan P Frayn. Director Derek Miles had gathered together a very strong cast for this year’s pantomime, using well-established actors while at the same time bringing promising young talent to the fore.

My wife and I attended Robin Hood last night with 9 friends. A fabulous performance with a laugh a minute. We loved Nellie the nurse. If you enjoy “he’s behind you” etc then make sure you book. We will be back again next year’

‘Director Karen Johnstone opted for a slow burning drama building up to an unexpected and shocking climax for the Woolstore Theatre’s Spring production. With only four actors, this very strong cast totally inhabited their characters and gave outstanding performances. Hilary Armstrong is a Woolstore veteran, while Matt Spencer has been with the company for 12 years and this was his first major role. Professional actresses Sophia Milburn and Katherine Beaumont were both making their Woolstore debuts and were excellent, hopefully this will not be the last time we see them.’

‘Don’t Dress For Dinner’
I thought ‘Don’t Dress For Dinner’ was by far the best thing I have seen at the Woolstore. I forgot I was at the Woolstore, and that friends were in the cast I just sat and enjoyed sublime performances on a terrific set. The timing was amazing and we all laughed and laughed, and gasped with amazement at the complexity of the dialogue. The comments and plaudits we are receiving on the nights are just amazing. I know how much hard work went into it but it was so worth it. Well done!’

I would like to thank the cast and crew for a really enjoyable pantomime this year. Aladdin was great!”
