Shh…The Musical, is presented by Right Here Productions.
It follows a young group of eight friends who hang around in a bookshop in Edinburgh. As the shop struggles to maintain business and the owner starts to accept his feelings for his girlfriend’s sister the group dynamic is tested and results in eventual tragedy.
The production weakens through the dialogue scenes which are long and tangle with the flow of the piece and the acting is not as strong as the singing, but the cast make the character’s clear from beginning to end.
The songs are the strength of the production, they are enjoyable and they develop the character’s really well with clarity and more of them instead of the extensive dialogue scenes would tell the story more effectively.
However, the audience enjoyed it and it is a very audience friendly piece.
