Review

From the Dorking Advertiser, 20th October 2011:-

It was all systems go at Ockley village hall when the inaugral 'Summer Variety Show' opened its doors.

Brilliantly organised by Clive Bordeli and Janette Alexander on behalf of the Ockley Dramatic Society, the eclectic collection of acts at this sell-out event varried from a side-splitting rendition of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves performed by the Forest Green WI, to a tear-jerkingly haunting song performed by 14-year-old singer/songwriter Clare Chapman and a Shakespearean soliloque delivered by Mignonne Cox.

Lucy Lawler and Jane Waugh showed that they didn't mind making fools of themselves in the name of emtertainment while Dave Waugh and Steve Martin held the audience spellbound with their amusing trips down memory lane and Nic Belfrage as the mystical Memory Woman amused and bemused.

Musical numbers were provided by teenage band Tearaway; jazz duo Maxine Dye and Ian Scott; and the very talented 'Jo and Ant' while Lizzie Goodman and Lucy Buckland entertained with their spirited dance interpretation of 'Our House' by Madness.

"We were blown away by the talent Ockley provided" said Clive Bordoli who also impressed with his funky bongo playing.

!It was another great village occasion when everybody joined in and had a fabulous time. I'm looking forward to next year's show already!"
