The Sound of Music
The Cypress Christian School Theatre and Music Departments treated audiences to an amazing production of "The Sound of Music" on March 9, 10 and 11 at The MET Church. Everything about this show was polished, full of heart and encouraged audience members with the message of perseverance and doing the right thing. The show included 51 actors (grades 2-12), 21 tech students and four directors. The actors poured their hearts into over 210 hours of rehearsals.
The main roles of Maria (Jessica Atkins, grade 12), Captain (Christian Slabic, grade 12), Max (Trevor Davies, grade 12), Elsa (Gia Granato, grade 12) and Mother Abbess (Rayne Harris, grade 11), were supported by the fantastic cast of seven Von Trapp children, (Ashleigh Townsend, Owen Layton, Danielle Robertson, Caleb Porrier, Illiana Sevilla, Amanda Atkins, Anna Doan and Marilyn Ward), the managers of the home, soldiers, nuns, party attendees and contestants.
We could not have done the show without our amazing theatre families who provided many of our props and costume pieces as well as financial support and encouragement. Thanks also to The MET Church for allowing us to use their facilities for the week and for their hospitality.
