The children of Holy Rood Catholic Primary School recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of the release of “The Sound of Music”, by presenting a production of the show for their families. The two shows raised £250, which was donated to Barnsley Hospice.
Headteacher, John Gregson, said, “The Y5/6 performances of “The Sound of Music” were truly amazing and one of the best productions that school has done. The children and staff put the whole thing together in approximately 3 weeks and the show lasted around 1 hour 20 minutes, but it was pure quality all the way through and we are so proud of each and every one of the children who really shone on both days.
“There were some incredible individual performances, with the main parts having a very lengthy script to learn off by heart, and also some children singing solo. To get up on stage and recite your lines or sing by yourself takes a lot of courage, as well as talent, and the children had both in abundance. We think it is so important to give children the opportunity for their talents to be discovered and until last week we didn’t know how well certain children could sing and act, and who knows now where this discovery will lead them?”
