Director Carol Robinson presented her vision for our production of The Sound of Music to an eager crowd of would-be cast members on Tuesday 15th November. We were really pleased to see a number of newcomers who we hope will audition to join us, if not auditioning for lead roles! Louise presented the draft ideas for the set design, while Carol played some of the songs from the show and explained the audition process. There was definitely a buzz of excitement in the room about this show!

Thank you to Ian Dewey at Barton Stacey VIPs for lending us their radio microphones to use in our production of Strictly Musicals.
Ian was only to happy to assist Andover Musical Theatre Company, as Louise Ellison helped the group out earlier this year, by doing the stage make-up for the beast in their production of Disney's Beauty and The Beast. He said, "Louise stepped in at the last minute to help us with the Beasts make-up as our usual make-up lady was taken ill. The make-up, which included prosthetics, looked fantastic and we were really thankful to Lou for helping us!"
