’Tis the season to be jolly on isle stages

December 8, 2011

Last weekend Seabury Hall presented its annual Christmas Party/Performing Arts Concert. Very few things make me feel older than the realization that a child performer I've known for years is getting ready for college. The sold-out weekend of song and dance had many a highlight, but my favorites were the performances of Ariella Brandon, Kelsey Greenway and Isabelle Olivet, particularly in Andre Morrisette's "Flight 75" dance. The kitschy number featured retro Pan Am stewardesses and passengers choreographed to classic Sinatra tunes. Also of note was the "Catching Sleep" dance choreographed by alumnus Amelia Nelson and performed by the Seabury dance ensemble to the music of Chet Baker. Nelson also performed "Cry Me a River" with accompanist Toby Couture. The talented duo was so entertaining that I'd love to see them perform regularly at a local club.
