Cowra Showcase Wows The Crowds!
Audiences were royally entertained this weekend when the Cowra Musical and Dramatic Society presented Cowra Showcase at the Civic Centre.
The show was indeed a showcase of wonderful talent from the smallest to the tallest and the youngest and to the most senior members of the cast.
A full and varied program featured songs from well-known musicals such as Phantom of the Opera, Chicago, Wicked, The Sound of Music and Fiddler on the Roof and from movies such as The Greatest Showman, Summer Holiday and Casablanca.
There was even a surprise selection from “The Vicar of Dibley”. It was wonderful to see so many new faces performing with the Musical and Dramatic Society
Imogen McCormick, Alli-Rose Cranney, Halle Flanagan, Claire Harrison and Sophia Flanagan as the children’s chorus performing in “When I Grow Up” from Matilda were delightful.
When a member of the cast was unable to perform, Alli-Rose stepped in at short notice to perform “Electricity” from Billiy Elliot.
Year 12 students, Jade Blinman and Kayla Hall showed what they can do with a rendition of “What is this Feeling” (loathing!) from Wicked and were then joined with Kate Smith to sing the touching “I Wish I May” from The Witches of Eastwick.
Seamus McCormick was “Mr Cellophane” from Chicago and with his sister, Imogen McCormack, gave an energetic performance of “Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better”.
The cast of Showcase sparkled their way through the show with bright and striking outfits and enthusiastic performances and the audiences showed their appreciation.
The program notes said “If you leave the theatre with a lilt in your step and a song on your lips the cast members have done their jobs”. They most certainly did!
