We are so proud of our students who participated in this year's summer musical; Cinderella! The summer show was directed by Ms. Elisa and Ms. Charlotte. The actors only had two weeks to learn their music and dances which is an impressive turnaround! The performance was on Saturday, June 24 at 10:00 AM. If you missed it in person, you can watch the entire show on the Academy of Sound YouTube page here. Last year there were only 8 participants and this year there were 18! It was fast, it was fun and we cannot wait for next year's summer musical.
