Bialik's production of Moulin Rouge Delights
Director Anisa Cameron and Musical Director Nick Burgess outdid themselves once again, this time with the production of Moulin Rouge. Presented at Bialik High School from March 27th to the 29th, audiences were entertained by a cast of 67 outstanding dancers, singers and actors. Lia Elbas as Satine and Brandon Schwartz as Sebastian were the perfect lovers. Elbas is a very talented actress and dancer whose voice fit perfectly with Schwartz's powerful and uplifting renditions of the beautiful love songs he sang throughout the show. Other honorable mentions must go to Jacob Shapiro as the evil Duke, playing his part to the extreme, and to Matan Kushner as the narcoleptic Argentinian Marco. For a few highlights of the show watch these excerpts from the video I took on opening night.
