This past November, Lindsay and I had the great pleasure of seeing a production of Shout! at Albion High School, Albion NY. The show was directed by Gary Simboli. We were absolutely blown away by the depth of talent talent and dedication of the cast and crew.
All of the music is sung a cappella in Shout!. The only “background music” is supplied by a vocal orchestra. Yes, it seems tricky, even daunting, but those that have tackled Shout! have been richly rewarded.
Here’s a video of “My Ideal” from their production. It gives a great sense of the harmonies as well as how engaged the audience gets with this show.
Kudos to everyone involved!
