Dozens of students are reflecting on the success of their latest show at the Ormiston Sudbury Academy.
For they had rave reviews of their production of the musical “Elf” at the complex in Tudor Road.
And Leo Cox, head of performance faculty, has praised the cast of 100 for working “tirelessly” and giving up their time to make the show such a big hit.
He said: “They have been a pleasure to direct and it is evident that they have enjoyed the production as much as I have.”
The show was chosen following a trip to see the music in the West End and Mr Cox said it was a dream to perform their own version.
“Always up for a challenge, however, we sat down and started planning it out and we were inundated with students desperate for a place in the cast.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed directing this year’s cast, who yet again are amongst the most dedicated and committed team of students I could wish for.
“I have particularly enjoyed all of the new faces especially our principals who are yet again almost completely made up of students who have never had a main role in a musical before.”
