The Sound Of Music

IMG_2230_-_Copy_Custom.JPGAt the end of the Summer Term, Salesian School put on a production of the famous stage show The Sound Of Music.

A talented cast of students, led by Head of Drama Mr Tony Clark and Head of Music Ms Rebecca Clarey, impressed full houses over three nights with outstanding singing, choreography and acting.

from the Directors:

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with such a talented group of actors, singers and dancers this year. The audition process for 'The Sound of Music' was exceptionally tough on the staff as the quality of our students' auditions was outstanding and choosing between students has been one of the most difficult tasks of the year. The process began to take shape when we started to arrange the Von Trapps– when we would see and hear a family, we felt were on the right track. A superb audition from Sofia Armella earned her Maria, which when we saw her acting with the children for the first time we knew we had a memorable production. You will hear a number of musical numbers not present in the film version, which greatly surprised us on first hearing and hopefully you'll enjoy them too. We sincerely hope you enjoy the show this evening, the students have given innumerable hours to us and stayed smiling throughout– even on the hottest day of the year so far! Thank you for supporting our production.
