World of Music cast
The show was performed and presented to a high standard including beautiful scenery of world landmarks painted by a family of talented artists from Benissa. The four singers were made up from the male duo, Apollo, and two solo female vocalists, Cath Hunter and Savanah.
After the colourful opening number which introduced the entire cast, the show moved smoothly from one number to another, and one style to another, with the singers performing both separately and as duos and trios throughout the show. The dancers were all students being trained at Marcia’s Dance Centre in Calpe, and the June Booth Studio in Orba who gave energetic performances of the Can Can, an Italian Tarantella, a Ho-Down and a traditional dance from Russia.
The songs ranged from musical theatre including Oklahoma, I Got Rhythm, and Well Did You Evah, to pop classics such as Walking In Memphis, You’re My World, Hey Mickey and a dance mix of Don´t Cry For Me Argentina.
During the first half of the show there were also lively performances from children from as young as three years old. For most of these children it was their first time on stage.
Philip Ashley is already working on further projects for later in the year which include a cabaret act with his group Adagio and his own debut CD of classical music.
