REVIEWS

“It was full of unexpected twists and turns. The acting was excellent and the music was wonderful. I really enjoyed the ensemble singing..really really good.”

“You should have gone along to ‘Edna’s Emporium’ to see this new musical comedy. There was some superb teamwork through-out starting with Edna, the struggling antique shop owner and her ever-dusting/listening-in side-kick, Mavis who could not have been more convincing. Her foreign-lady appearance was a real show-stopper.” (Teignmouth Post)

“The Emporium strikes back!”
