NEARING THE END OF WEEK TWO…
for the four emerging singers, director, repetiteur and two designers, not forgetting the stage manager and lighting designer, who have introduced approximately 1,000 children from local primary schools, and as far afield as St. Helens to Musical Theatre. THANK YOU… to the cast, their compere/director AND accompanist, who performed a varied show for the Clonter Friends, Patrons and Volunteers on Saturday night – from Bernstein’s West Side Story to Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd, via Johann Strauss II’s Die Fledermaus, Mozart’s Magic Flute, and Lerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady. The show was also available to children aged 10-18 yesterday evening, which was included in an after-school workshop and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. It was an action-packed evening which was comprised of a Set and Lighting Design Workshop, a Musical Theatre Workshop, and finished off with a Musical Theatre Variety Show of songs from musicals, opera and operetta, followed by meeting the cast after the show.
