STOMP at the Theatre Royal

On September 11, 2013

By Rebecca McRitchie

Rhythmic beats and uproarious laughter filled the Theatre Royal as the skilled cast of STOMP made themselves heard. After their performance at the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics, the skilled entertainers of STOMP are back with new choreography and new music.

The musical routines are succinctly coordinated and energetically performed to the point where it is impossible not to be amazed. Various instruments are used in synchronised harmony; from hands and feet, to matchboxes and Zipper lighters, to buckets and shopping trolleys, to pipes and plastic bags, to trashcans and brooms, to newspapers and cups, to basketballs and even kitchen sinks.

The clever, inventive and impressive show features a lot of audience interaction and by the end of the night you will find yourself not only thoroughly entertained but also desperately trying to clap and stomp with any resemblance of rhythm. Similarly, despite being a completely wordless performance, STOMP is incredibly funny with many of the characters on stage partaking in slapstick and mime.

Fast-paced and high energy, STOMP is perfect for kids and adults of all ages. The particularly memorable routines are by far the group routines, where singular beats are soon transformed into synchronised and harmonious music.

No wonder STOMP is in its 11th year in Londonís West End and its 20th year on Broadway!

Stomp is on at the Theatre Royal in Sydney until Saturday September 15. Tickets can be purchased here.
