Over three consecutive nights, the stage at Cheadle Hulme High School (CHHS) came alive with the timeless melodies and captivating story of The Sound of Music!

The musical, which tells the story of the von Trapp family and their governess Maria during the Nazi annexation of Austria, featured incredible performances by talented students from across the school and Sixth Form.

With months of preparation and rehearsals, the dedicated cast, musicians, and crew worked tirelessly to make this an unforgettable show, and their hard work paid off!

The audience were treated to a spectacular display of singing, dancing, acting, and music as students brought the beloved characters and songs to life.

Behind the scenes, students working in lighting, sound and stage management created a professional and immersive theatrical experience like no other!

The staff production team praised the students for their hard work and enthusiasm:
“This delightful musical has been an honour to stage and whilst steeped in a fraught historical context, ultimately holds at its heart a reminder of the profound power of music to heal and transform. The students have been a credit to CHHS with their exemplary work ethic, passion and drive to create a show the whole school can be proud of.”

We are incredibly proud of everyone who was involved in making this year’s school production such a success.

We would like to say a huge thank you to every person who contributed to this show, and to our wonderful audience for sharing in our joy as we watched it come to life!
