The Ovations

The Ovations 2018

Milton Musical Society enjoyed another exciting year at the 2018 Ovations awards at the Bournemouth Pavillion.

Recognition went to John Teather for his contribution to the society as director of shows such as Titanic, Oklahoma! and last year's My Fair Lady. Silma Ramsaywack picked up an award for her comedic performance in My Fair Lady, with Alex Cook and Amy McIntosh being rewarded for their roles as Professor Higgins and Eliza Doolittle.

Jon Shiner also scooped an award for Outstanding Director following last November's revue show Masquerade!

  The collaborators on CHESS are giants of rock music and rock musicals, & here they have created a complex rock opera that has played to full houses and standing ovations around the world. In this musical, the ancient game becomes a metaphor for romantic rivalries, competitive gamesmanship, super-power politics & International intrigues. The pawns in this drama form a love triangle; the loutish American chess star, the earnest Russian champion & a Hungarian born English woman who arrives at the international chess match in Merano,Italy, with the American, but falls for the Russian. From Merano to Bangkok, the players, lovers, politicians and spies manipulate & are manipulated to the pulse of a monumental rock score that includes "One Night in Bangkok" & " I Know him so well", not to mention "Anthem" & "Nobody's Side".
