The production of the Ruyton Trinity musical Sweet Charity in the first week of this term was a phenomenal success. With a full house for all performances, the audience was mesmerised by a brilliant rendition of some old favourite melodies. The talented Sophie K, Schrader M and Alice P, in their lead roles were well supported by a strong vocal cast. The choreography and dance performance of this year’s production was a highlight of the evening. With approximately 100 students from Ruyton and Trinity combined, the production of Sweet Charity was a testament to the strength of the relationship between the two schools and the Co-ordinate Programme. The cast and crew were in the capable hands of Director and old Trinity Grammarian Alex Goldsworthy, who is working in the Drama Department this year. Although not visible to the audience the musical performance of the orchestra was first class and a credit to the musicians. A production of this scale cannot occur without the support of a number of individuals who have devoted their time, creative minds, resources and energy to ensure the success of the musical. Mr Paul Smith, leader of the Orchestra and Director of Performing Arts, Director Mr Alex Goldsworthy, Producer Mrs Janine Power, Co-ordinator of Drama Mrs Christine Lucas-Pannam, vocal coaches Ms Liz O’Hanlon and Ms Eva Anagnostou, piano accompanist Mr Shaun Jones and Music, Drama and Art staff from Ruyton are to be thanked for their generous contributions and commitment to the production. Without the support of the FORDA and FORMA parent groups, this type of event could not be held and we are indebted to parents who assisted with costume design and construction, hair and make-up, set design and construction, Front of House and communications.
Congratulations to all cast and crew on a fabulous performance of Sweet Charity.
