Pupils at Matravers School in Westbury wowed audiences with their annual production recently, with staff and pupils producing Back to the 80s.
The production, which was rehearsed over six weeks, was performed to primary schools in the area before welcoming parents, guests and school friends to three consecutive evening shows.
The leads included Alex Jilg, Hannah Ralph, Tim Kirk, Abi Cavalla, Harriet Long, Shannon Harvey, Jess Robinson and Joe Cavalla, as well as a host of actors, singers and dancers.
Drama and English teacher Rebecca Walker, who directed the show, said: “We had six rehearsal weeks, so it was pretty hectic, but was well worth the stress.
“It was a brilliant show and I was so proud of all involved. All the shows were superb and the audience was full with glow sticks, clapping and dancing along to the tunes.
“Back to the 80s is a relatively new production, and I am really glad we chose it, as it worked brilliantly.“
