According to Director, Glen Pickering, it was 'an epic production' and the students 'deserve all the praise and respect heaped upon them. Leader of the Pack tells the story of Ellie Greenwich who rose to fame in the sixties penning a huge range of popular songs such as 'Be My Baby', 'Chapel of Love', 'Da Doo Ron Ron' and, of course, 'Leader of the Pack'.
The music for the show was wonderful and had many of the audience humming along (well, some of us oldies anyway) and as for the singing ... Natasha Mooney (Year 13), Kristie Voorburg (year 12) and Danielle Moore (Year 10) proved that they certainly could have a future in music. Thanks here must go to Musical Director and Music teacher Guinevere Ryan who spent months preparing the cast and band for this musical extravaganza.
Natasha Mooney, who played lead Ellie Greenwich, commented: 'We all had such a blast and it was so rewarding putting the show together piece by piece and finally getting into the theatre and seeing all our hard work pay off.' And is certainly did pay off, with many commenting that this was the best production ever.
The finale gave the audience a last taste of the effortless but powerful voice of Kristie Voorburg singing 'River Deep, Mountain High', leaving every member of the audience awestruck. It is only fitting then that Kristie has the final word: 'It has been so uplifting to be part of this whole production – an amazing cast and amazing crew which therefore makes for an amazing time!'
