Richard Parr. Norfolk News.

'Les Miserables' - January 2009 - Douglas Choral Union

'Definitely one of the best shows I have ever seen, reveiving standing ovations at every performance. The show was flawless, flowed beautifully from start to finish.... a priviledge to be part of the audience of this vibrant show... absolutely amazing. In my opinion, you wouldn't see a better, more professional show anywhere in the UK, outside of London's West End'

John Gregory - Manx Independent

‘Sweet Charity' – Hayes & Harlington (February 2000)

‘Jeremy's passion for on-stage excellence was evident throughout this production. The cast were clearly briefed on their individual characterisations and style and this manifested in the quality of their performance. The standard of choreography was just superb throughout. The ‘Rich Man's Frug' was the most outstanding and challenging form of dancing I have seen in an amateur production.

‘Jesus Christ Superstar' - Ipswich Operatic (April 2003)

‘The direction and choreography are outstanding …. This production pulls out the stops to create a moving and mesmerising masterpiece, that's entertaining and informative…'

The Scarlet PimpernelThe Witches of EastwickTitanic

'The Producers' - March 2009 - Croft House Operatic

'Jeremy Tustin's direction and choreography are lucid, fluent and well-staged with great set pieces from the hard working chorus. The production values are of a very high standard. This production will be a tough act to follow and very hard for other societies to beat.

Marion Haywood - Sheffield Telegraph

‘Witches of Eastwick' – Sheffield Teachers (November 2005)

Under the adept direction of Jeremy Tustin, the production is polished and energetic. This is a highly professional performance enhanced by the colourful, evocative sets. Double entendres, sexual puns and female liberation are the order of the day and although the material perhaps appeals more to women, the musical still offers a wicked evening of fun, magic and mayhem to all."

Sam Taylor. Sheffield Telegraph.

"Smokey Joes Cafe " - Chelmsford Young Generation ( April 2008 )

Jeremy Tustin's sure-footed production of this unique show did not disappoint. Number after number leapt to life on this tiny stage

the show was absolutely brilliant, the performers were amazing,the music fantastic and as for the dancing, I was tired watching them. The whole theatre was alive with the sounds of the 1950s and the most amazing thing was although it was set way back, the show had a really modern feel to it.
