"The music was fantastic."

The participants' response to being asked what they enjoyed most in the 2014 Musical Play in a Week: 
The atmosphere was relaxed, exciting and the show went really well
I loved how much fun all the songs and learning the play was
Acting, but still having the leeway to have fun and laugh at funny bits 
Games, acting and being part of an ensemble
Very well organised, exciting and well run, productive and yet laid back, but not so laid back that we didn't learn anything
Having fun with friends (and making more of them)
Everything - it's great fun.  The helpers are enthusiastic and encouraging and everyone is really lovely
The Musical Play in a Week is supported by The Mayfield Valley Arts Trust.
