Thurston Community College students rehearse for their production of 'We Will Rock You'

Archant

Talented teenagers in west Suffolk are enjoying their own school of rock this week as their annual production scores top marks.

Students across all years at Thurston Community College have taken part in this year’s production of We Will Rock You, the musical by Queen and Ben Elton.

Having held successful shows on Wednesday and Thursday - which received rave reviews from parents and teachers alike - the youngsters will bring the curtain down on their production tonight and tomorrow, with a matinee performance tomorrow afternoon followed by a sold-out show.

Leading man Robbie Noonan, who plays Galileo, has featured for a number of amateur companies across Suffolk and hopes to pursue a career in musical theatre, while a number of the show’s other stars are members of the LMA Stage School.

Languages teacher Kevin Fisk is also reprising the role of Pop - a role he first held in the school’s previous production of We Will Rock You five years a go.
