Flintridge Prep’s Staging of The Sound of Music is a Hit

Flintridge Prep was alive with The Sound of Music this winter, as the Performing Arts Department staged the iconic musical for packed auditoriums of family, friends and fans. With two casts, the four-performance run showcased the wealth of talented student actors and actresses at Prep.

Students from all grades sang and danced their way through energetic performances of My Favorite Things, Do-Re-Mi, So Long, Farewell, Sixteen Going on Seventeen and more.

Nicole Emmons ‘16 and Rosie Ryden ’16 both wowed with their vocals as Maria, and Cameron Wen ’15 and Christopher Zaro ’15 captured the astuteness of Captain von Trapp with style. All of the students showed incredible discipline, working tirelessly over the past few months to learn lines and dance routines, perfect lyrics and study the motivations of their characters, as well as the history of the play.

Performing Arts Department Chair and Director Rob Lewis dedicated the performances to the students, saying, “Through it all we stick together, muster up grit and eventually find our harmony. This show is dedicated to them for constantly showing us the best that people can be.”

Performing Arts faculty helped drive the production, with Steve Hill and Jon Murray working on music and vocals, Caterina Mercante and Molly Mattei serving as choreographers and Scott Myers running the house.
