Crackley Performing Arts Shine Under The Gables' Lights
One evening, 33 acts and over 100 performers showcased the musical and dramatic talents of Crackley Hall School. For many this was their first venture in front of the lights and didn’t they do well?
Some pieces were well known such as the rousing Orchestral opener 'Rock Around The Clock', others were new and gloriously delivered like the Choral Speaking Ensemble 'Neighbours'. Solo work on the trumpet, horn and guitar followed with the ever popular Recorder Group triumphant in their rendition of a march from 'A Little Suite'.
As ever, many high quality Musical Theatre performances were staged. Alice Minshull's confident rendition of 'The Girl I Want To Be' and Harriet Boyd's sublime 'Wouldn't It Be Loverly' were greatly enjoyed.
Throughout the concerts pupils recited LAMDA examination pieces ranging from the humorous; Connor Horan's 'Chicken Poxed', to the moving; Isabella Ward's 'Once The Wind'.
The concert ended as it began with the stage packed with Crackley’s resounding Choral Group performing 'The Call', 'Be The Change' and 'Rhythm Of Life'.
Mrs Olden, Mrs Wildey and Ms Rod have shown us once again what talent, energy and zest for the performing arts there is at Crackley Hall. We can't wait for the upcoming Easter performances.
