It really was a night to remember.
The production of Cabaret by pupils at the Royal Alexandra and Albert School was truly remarkable. The show took place over three nights and culminated in the final Gala performance on Saturday 19th October. The audience was treated to a three-course meal before enjoying the polished performance from the School's accomplished musicians and actors.
All elements of the production were delivered impeccably. The set was spectacular with soaring columns forming a sparkling backdrop to the well-rehearsed scenes depicting the spread of fascism through Berlin in the 1930s. The characters connected with the audience in a way that can only be achieved by delivering a believable and compelling performance. The show was supported by musicians who really captured the mood of the time. The dancers and those in the Kit Kat Club gave well-choreographed routines that were entertaining and in keeping with the 1930's theme.
It was clear that a great deal of work has been put in by all those involved. Indeed, rehearsals started months ago in the Summer Term and set-production was taking place during the summer holidays.
Headmaster, Mark Dixon, commented;
"The creative arts are an important part of this school and I am delighted that so many departments have worked together to deliver this excellent production of Cabaret. I would like to thank Christian Jones, Head of Drama, the cast, and the rest of the Cabaret team for all the work they have put in to making this a reality. It was a production that will leave many lasting memories."
