The Sound of Musicals

30 June 2017

 

The 2nd and 3rd Form put on two hugely entertaining performances of “The Sound of Musicals” this week.

The boys performed extracts and musical numbers from a variety of West End shows. Each member of the cast wowed the audience with their wonderful singing and acting; their performances were fantastic to watch.

The show started with the 2nd Form entering the stage to Oliver’s “Food Glorious Food” and then moving onto a fantastic rendition of “Oom Pah Pah”, supported by the staff choir.  “Oliver” then made way to “Billy Elliot” with George T (3rd Form) in the role of Billy singing “Electricity” accompanied by both year groups.  Scenes from “Matilda” was up next from the 3rd Form with help from Ma’am Banham as Miss Trunchbull.  James F gave a great performance of “When I Grow Up” as the soloist. We then went from one Roald Dahl story to another with the 2nd Form performing “Pure Imagination” and a scene from “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”.

Harry M and Albert S, in the 3rd Form, were brilliant as Edward and Mikey from Blood Brothers, giving a powerful performance of the scene when they first meet.  This then gave way to the staff choir with a special performance of “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” from the “Lion King”.  The 3rd Form then took the pace up with a rousing rendition of “Fat Sam’s Grand Slam” from “Bugsy Malone”.  The production ended with scenes from “Annie” and the whole cast singing “Tomorrow”.

Transitions between musicals were brilliant and the energy from everyone involved was infectious, the audience went away singing.
