Musical Supervisor for Cinderella, Shone Productions, Middleton Arena 2014.
This was a great show, with a great cast and creative team. The band for this particular show consisted of only, Drums, Guitar and Keyboard. The rest of the orchestra was put onto a click track, allowing the band to play-a-long to enhance the overall sound, providing a whole new dimension to the audiences experience. Backing vocals were also arranged and recorded to enhance the performance, and were provided as a separate layer, allowing the sound engineer to retain control of the mix. Below is a compilation of some of the music used in this show. Below are examples of rehearsal tracks used in the various pantomimes I’ve produced for, which include all instruments of the band/orchestra, as a reference to how the finished article should sound. Enjoy!
The show featured “Same Difference” Sean Smith, as Prince Charming & Sarah Smith, as Fairy Godmother, Hazel Pude (Byker Grove) as Cinderella and “Rollo” as Buttons.
