True Showcase of Talent at Musical Theatre Evening

True Showcase of Talent at Musical Theatre Evening

Our Musical Theatre showcase was an outstanding evening filled with an electrifying mix of classic tunes and contemporary hits that included song from musicals from 1934 to 2017. Our compere for the evening was a special guest, Robert Bruce (singer, actor, dancer, producer, stage manager, director and skilled ‘raconteur’) who has worked alongside Musicals legends such as Sir Cameron Macintosh, Sir Andrew Lloyd-Webber and Sir Tim Rice. Robert was highly impressed by every performer and could not have been more complimentary about the standard of singing shown. Our huge thanks go to our team of vocal Visiting Music Teachers here at school.

One of the most enchanting aspects of the evening was the blend of old and new musicals. From the timeless melodies of Somewhere from “West Side Story” to the modern RnB groove of Burn from “Hamilton,” every performance was a testament to the enduring power of musical theatre across generations. It was inspiring to see the pupils bring these iconic songs to life with such passion and skill, breathing new life into beloved classics while also embracing the spirit of innovation in more contemporary pieces. Our opening item, You Will Be Found from ‘Dear Evan Hansen’ was an uplifting choral moment from Chamber Choir and soloists.

The talent on display was highly impressive. From the stunning vocal performances to the impressive staging, it was clear that each pupil had given special thought into the creative performance. Enjoyable costumes and dance brought characters to life as well as the accompaniment from our staff band.

The evening was filled with the sense of community and camaraderie. It was evident that the pupils were not only passionate about performing but also about supporting one another and celebrating each other’s successes. Congratulations must go to every single performer- there are too many highlights to mention any particular act. Our Upper Sixth most certainly deserve mention and thanks for their final musical theatre performances at the school, as well as their dedication and commitment to choral singing; Bella B, Olivia A and Zandile M.
