Thomas Mills High School’s dress rehearsals of Barnum ahead of performances this week
Students at a Suffolk school have been taking part in rehearsals of its latest production ahead of performances later this week.
Pupils at Thomas Mills High School, in Framlingham, have been learning lines and perfecting their talents for three performances of the musical Barnum.
The musical is based on the life of showman Phineas Taylor Barnum, who resided in America in the 19th Century.
Barnum, a politician, philanthropist and owner of the American Museum and New York, also ran a travelling circus, billed as ‘the greatest show on earth’, on which the production focuses. Year 13 student Jack Heydon plays the role of Barnum.
Known as the circus musical, the play, written in 1981, will be performed tomorrow, Thursday and Friday at 7pm.
