The popular production was put on at the sixth form in Scrivener Drive, featuring 30 students from across a host of courses in the cast, alongside an orchestra of students for a live score and involvement from 12 Cliff Lane Primary School pupils.

Lois Hinsley, director of curriculum for media and performing arts, said: “I’d say that this was our most ambitious production to date – and it will go down in history as one of our best.

“The audience reaction was tremendous and I felt incredibly proud of everyone.

“They all came together to make this a roaring success.”

It follows on from successful shows such as We Will Rock You and Rent.

The sixth form’s next production will be a dance show on Wednesday, March 21, before the Spring Concert ton Thursday, April 26.
