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.

'The Sound of Musicals' includes numbers from 'Annie', 'My Fair Lady' and 'The Sound of Music'

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.
