Review of Vicar of Dibley

Production details

The Vicar of Dibley was a fantastic success, due mainly to a superb cast and direction form Julia Chandler, supported by Liz Sands and a hardworking back stage crew on costume and set.

With over 500 people watching 2 hours of fun and laughter over 3 nights and a matinee, Saltford will remember this show for many years. It was fitting that this play should have been chosen after it was muted some 2 years previously as a potential box office sell-out. And so it turned out.

The actors all thoroughly enjoyed rehearsals and were a credit to the parts portrayed by the original characters.

John Cawley as the haughty David Horton, Corinne-Anne Richards as the funny and chocolate loving Geraldine Granger, Keith Warhurst as dear old Hugo, Sally Warhurst’s brilliant portrayal of Alice Tinker, Carenza Ellery as the fish loving baker Letitia Cropley, Martin Coles as the indecisive Jim Trott, Tony Powell and the dithering Frank Pickle, Norman James as the lecherous farmer Owen Newitt, and not forgetting the wonderful children, Betty & Harry Warhust, Elliot Morse and Louis Zinkant.

Last but not least, thanks as always are expressed to our wonderful front of house and box office voluteers, without who the show would not go on. Look out now for more hilarious follow ups.
