Glenwood High School will have audiences rocking from New York to Durban, Sydney to London and Paris to Rio De Janeiro. Glenwood Goes Global will whisk audiences across the globe for one big party.
Guided by our very own Mr Sookdeo (Old boy and Staff member) as the comical character Phil from The Amazing Race, audiences will need to hold on to their seats as the whirlwind race begins. We will visit Canada where we pay tribute to their musical icons such as Shania Twain and Bryan Adams, with hits Impress Me Much and Summer of 69. The race then heads across the Atlantic to Europe where stops are made in Ireland, Scotland, France, Spain, Sweden and England where we experience the music of Roxette, Edith Piaf, The Gypsy Kings, ABBA, Queen, and the Beatles.
The party really gets going before interval with hits such as Whiskey in The Jar, 500 miles, Hot Hot Hot, Havana and the South Korean hit, Gangnam Style. The second half kicks off down under with Australian favourites like Men at Work’s – Who Can It Be Now. Audiences then wing their way across the Pacific to Jamaica with the sultry sounds of Shabba Ranks and Mr Loverman.
Highlights include a fun version of Kung Fu Fighting, and an energetic Cotton Eye Jo as well as the School choirs’ rendition of the South African classic, Weeping.
Then it’s off to the USA where you get a taste of the greatest pop icons of all time, with Bruce Springsteen as well as the hip hop classic Rappers Delight. A fleeting transit is made to Mexico, before touching down on home soil.
The South African tribute is a highlight, performing Mango Groove’s Special Star and Kurt Darren’s Kaptein.
Glenwood Goes Global is a party for everyone and will have you rocking from the first number to the final anthem. So get out your dancing shoes and come rocking all over the world!
Tickets available from the Glenwood High School Finance Office at R50 per person.
