Proud sponsors of Crediton Operatic Dramatic Society

24th April 2019

Gilbert Stephens Solicitors are very pleased to have sponsored a performance by the Crediton Operatic Dramatic Society (CODS) of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel.

The performances ran all last week with the final performance on Saturday 20th April 2019. The show was staged at Queen Elizabeth’s School, Barnfield in Crediton.

CODS are famous in the area for their musical productions. They are extremely active in the local community, recruiting young performers from the age of 8 to join more seasoned actors and learn stage craft. The growing group have worked together to produce a fantastic musical theatre production and everyone involved should be very proud.

Carousel is an action packed love story, set on the coast of New England in the late 19th Century. The cast delighted their audience last night with plenty of drama, song and dances overseen by choreographer Amy Charles.

Gilbert Stephens were represented on the night by Judi Thistlewood from our Crediton office. Judi tells us, “the performance was very well done, an immense effort went into it from everyone and the audience had such fun. Buffy May, who played Carrie, was so impressive – a really stand out performance. The story was very moving, it brought a lump to my throat.”

Gilbert Stephens are always keen to support our local communities and being a sponsor for this extremely talented and hard working group of performers is very exciting. We are looking forward to their future productions and encourage anyone in the Crediton and surrounding area to go and see their shows.
