Wildcats Preparing For The Sound of Music

The “hills are alive” at Saluda Trail with The Sound of Music as Wildcats are preparing for their 9th musical which will take place May 23rd and 24th at 7 p.m.

The Sound of Music is based on the true story of the Von Trapp Family Singers. It tells the story of a young lady named Maria Rainer who becomes a governess for the seven Von Trapp children. The story takes place is Austria.  Addison Creagh, a 7th grader, landed the role of Maria.

Students have been working hard on learning their parts and choreography. “The practices are going fantastic, and I learn more and more every time I go,” said Emma Gentry who plays Liesel the oldest daughter.  ”I am super excited for the performance and for everyone to see all the work we have put into this show!”  Gentry, a 7th grader, was in The Lion King last year.  She played the role of older Nala. “I was also the narrator in the show Snow White in 4th grade,” she said.

Rehearsals have been in full swing.

“The practices are going great,” said Emily Morrison, who is a part of the ensemble. “Everyone is pulling it together,” said Morrison, a 7th grader. “There are just a few things that need to be worked out.  I feel really good about being in this play because I love the story and movies.” Morrison  has been in Pirates, Thoughts, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, The Wizard of Oz, Into the Woods Jr.  and  Seussical. 

Curtis Little, who landed the role of Franz in the upcoming musical, is also excited about this year’s performance.  Little, who is in the 7th grade, was also in last year’s musical, The Lion King Jr.  Little said he “likes the thrill of acting.”  He said he wasn’t surprised when he learned he landed the part.  “I knew I was going to get the part,” he said.

Cameron Long, who plays Herr Zeller,  said he “felt excited” when he learned he got the part. Long, a 7th-grader, said he tried out this year because he was also in The Lion King last year and had fun.  Long said he likes to act because “it’s so much fun.”
