Hitchin Thespians proved they are 'Unlimited' by staging a full musical theatre performance after just six weeks of preparation.

The Unlimited show was devised by Sarah Bailes and Wesley Strahan-Hughes, with rehearsals beginning at the end of August.

Cast members had just six weeks to learn the words, harmonies and choreography, as well as sourcing at least two costumes for each of the 25 performers.

Performances took place at Woodside Hall from October 12 to 14.

The evening featured a mix of songs from current West End shows and little-known shows that are rarely performed - which was a big hit with audience members.


A spokesperson from Hitchin Thespians said: "Over the course of 25 numbers, they sang, acted and danced their hearts out, to the evident joy of audience members who clapped and cheered throughout."

Not all of the challenges were musical - as the second half required a costume change and the application of face paints.

According to the Thespians, the "buzz has already begun" for performing Unlimited 2.

In the meantime, Hitchin Thespians will perform their annual Christmas concert Christmas at Woodside, also at Woodside Hall, from Friday, December 8 to Sunday, December 10.
