Principles of “The Sound of Music” Ready to Open this Thursday Night
HCA’s spring musical, The Sound of Music, opens this Thursday night at 7:00 p.m. with an amazing cast and crew of over 100, ranging from elementary children through high school seniors, as well as faculty, alumni, and staff!
Let us introduce you to our two main leads playing Maria and Captain von Trapp!
Abigail Canning, Highlands junior, will be playing the role of Maria. Her favorite line in the musical is, “Did you climb up that trellis?” and what she loves most about being in this musical is all the music and singing! Last spring Abigail played the roles of Allana and a tapping seagull in The Little Mermaid, and the year before played Marilla in Anne of Green Gables. Through her involvement in these musicals, Abigail says she has learned that “once you are in the drama family, you forever are part of the drama family and have friends for life.” HCA congratulates Abigail on her principle role in this year’s musical!
Bryce Barton, Highlands senior, plays the role of Captain Georg von Trapp. His favorite line in the musical is, “You will call me Captain.” What Bryce loves most about being in this show is the acting and being on stage. Bryce came to Highlands as a freshman and sang in the ensemble for Music Man, played Gilbert Blithe in Anne of Green Gables, and played Sebastian in The Little Mermaid. Through being in these musicals at Highlands, Bryce says he has learned that “I was made to perform and entertain.” HCA congratulates Bryce on playing a principle role this spring!
