Last week, over the course of four incredible performances, students brought their rendition of The Music Man to the stage.
Meredith Willson’s Broadway classic, The Music Man, follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain fall.
“It was an incredible experience to take on the role of Harold Hill and work so closely with all of the talented students,” said School Vice Captain, Charlie Goldsworthy. “Although it is my last Clarendon musical, I am grateful for the opportunity to reach out of my comfort zone and try something new. I’m excited to see what my future holds for productions after school.”
Audiences were amazed by the talented company of 78 performers, orchestral musicians and crew members who began rehearsals in late 2021.
“It was a privilege to direct the 2022 Senior Musical and I am incredibly proud of all of the students who worked with such passion and enthusiasm to bring River City, Iowa, to life,” said Director, Nicholas McMahon. “I am grateful to Musical Director, Steven Belcher, Choreographer, Sarah Kate Landy, Choral Director, Kyle Hackwill, Costume Designer, Pauline Postlethwaite, the Performing Arts team and parent helpers, without whom, this production would not have been possible”.
Congratulations to all of the students, staff and members of the Clarendon community involved in the 2022 Senior Musical, The Music Man.
