Woking College hummed to the sounds of the 1950’s with the sell out performances of Cry Baby the Musical, the College’s annual musical production
Based on the John Waters film of the same name, Cry-Baby follows the story of Baltimore teenager Allison Vernon-Williams, a “good girl” who falls for Cry-Baby, the leader of the “Drape” rebel gang from the other side of the tracks.
With a cast of 34 young actors and dancers and a live band the production played to standing ovations each night.
Directed by Claire Nevers, Head of Performing Arts with musical arrangement by Jack Davies and choreography by Millie Collyer. Claire congratulated students on their professionalism and dedication in putting on a truly professional production after only 12 rehearsals.
Student Ruby Hopper who plays Pepper Walker commented “Playing the role of Pepper has been a wonderful opportunity to gain confidence in my performance ability. The teachers are the most supportive, kindest people ever. Their hard work, dedication and passion will be reflected in each one of our performances. Enjoy the show!”
