A matinee of Manchester Creative and Media Academy’s (Girls) brand-new musical production ‘The Sound of Musicals’ was put on especially for local senior citizens.
Over 50 people from the community filled Brookside Hall to watch the performance of numbers from popular musicals ‘Annie’, ‘My Fair Lady’ and ‘The Sound of Music’.
Local residents, from areas including Apprentice Court, Middleton Hall and Broughton House, enjoyed the show which has been devised by the music and drama department.
A group of year 9 students who are completing their Duke of Edinburgh award served refreshments.
Mrs Lundy, who attended the show with her husband, said: “It was very good. I enjoyed it very much.
“The girls were great. I liked the girl that was telling off the American character near the end!”
Dorothy Sherwood and Edna Dennis agreed: “It was a lovely show. The girls are very talented”, Dorothy said.
Humanities teacher Michael Willemsen helped to organise the visit.
He said: “The matinee performance for the Music Department went very well. All of the audience had a great time and made very positive comments about the talent of the girls performing.”
The performance was taster of the evening performances of ‘The Sound of Musicals’, which took place last night (March 24). There will be a second show this evening (March 25).
