REVIEW

April 16 through April 18, Osceola drama students put on the production, The Sound of Music, a play written by Richard Rodgers, with Rebecca Hazners, 12th grade, and Prestin Kremer, 12th grade, as the two main leads. After weeks of rehearsals and chaos, the actors were finally able to perform. The actors had a slight problem before the play with getting costumes ready, but were able to pull through with a great performance.

“We did have a little problem with the costumes, but Mr. Pace handled it pretty well,” said Sam McCann, 11th grade, who also played one of the nuns. “We had most of our costumes but we also had to borrow some from Gibbs and St. Pete Theater; we also made some of our own costumes.”

The students put on a great performance, and the audience fell in love with the characters. “The play was just so beautiful!” said Anna Salmeron, 10th grade, “Prestin and Rebecca did a wonderful job!”

“The acting and singing was great!” said Bryce Wyatt, 10th grade.

The chemistry between Rebecca’s character, Maria Rainer, and Prestin’s character, Captain Georg von Trapp, was unbelievable. They made the audience truly believe their characters were deeply in love.

The cast and crew remained calm through all the difficulties that came on Saturday with power outages and muffled microphones. They kept their cool and followed the age-old saying, “The show must go on!” The crew was a bit upset over the events on Saturday.

Schae Schaffer, 10th grade, said, “We have no idea what’s going on, we really can do a better job than this.” However the audience reassured them that it was still a beautiful show, as it ended with a standing ovation from the audience.

The best part of the show had to most definitely be the singing from the actors who played Von Trapp’s children. Through the soft voices of Jenna Tuthill, 12th grade, Brianna Varner, Jade Pashoian, 10th grade, and several middle school age children, you could hear Ben Daubert’s super low and deep voice.

The Osceola Drama Department surely ended the year on a great note.
