A story of hope*

Intense: Patrice Richardson (Aida) and Devon De Bourgh (Radames) in rehearsal for Aida the Musical.

When Naparima Bowl’s extensive reno­vations cast uncertainty over the events scheduled to be hosted at the facility, one South-based youth group remained determined to bring its production to the stage. This month, the group’s resolve will come to fruition as the ­Presentation College Mixed Choir presents Aida the Musical from today to Sunday.
Originally scheduled to open in October last year, this pop-rock musical brings together a vibrant group of pupils from over 15 secondary schools.
It features an alternating cast, which includes Chelsey Merrick and Martina Magalhaes of St Joseph’s Convent, San Fernando, as Amneris; Aaron De Silva and Devon De Bourgh of Presentation College, San Fernando, as Radames; and stars Jacinta Sandiford of St Joseph’s Convent, San Fernando, and Patrice Richardson of Holy Faith Convent, Couva, in the title role.
