Tribute to movie hits at the Hexagon Theatre

Witness Reporter

The Sound of Movies is a tribute to the songs made famous by the great (and not so great) movies of the 20th Century.

They’re back! The group that produced Rock, Rattle ‘n Roll, Yesterday Once More, Oh What A Night! and other shows are back with their latest show. Their shows have had many sold-out seasons over the last five years and have become an annual highlight on the Hex Calendar.

The Sound of Movies is a tribute to the songs made famous by the great (and not so great) movies of the 20th Century. The group has chosen a selection of famous songs that were a highlight of the particular movie they were written for. Chronologically, the songs range from the 1930s to the 1990s, and include such hits as Take my Breath Away, A Hard Day’s Night, Alfie, Say a Little Prayer, Up Where We Belong, As Time Goes By, Mona Lisa and a range of Disney classics, amongst many more. For the trivia lovers out there, there will also be a small quiz about the songs and the movies they come from.

The cast is once again made up of Sandra Styles, Tammy Calder, James Aitchison and Ryan Calder, and the music provided by Justin Southey, whose arrangements of the songs are fresh and dynamic. Peter Mitchell is once again the director, and promises that this new show will live up to, and even surpass the professionalism, fun and nostalgia of its predecessors.
