The pick of the singers was Rhian Lois in the soubrette role of the maid Adele, who truly threw her voice at the role, producing energy and excitement at every turn.


Rhian Lois is a delightful discovery as a feisty, Welsh-accented Adele, and she sings the Laughing Song in a light, bright style.


Rhian Lois, whose captivating performance as Romilda’s sister, Atlanta, caught perfectly the character’s scheming sauciness as well as the lonely desperation cloaked beneath it
