The year 10 and 11 students from Priory Community School, in Queensway, performed Into The Woods.

The chorus was sung by 75 students, with current and former pupils doing the lighting and sound.

Principal Jane McBride said: 
“This was truly a sensational run of three nights of the musical with fantastic performances by dozens of students.

“We are very proud of them all.”

Rehearsals took place several times a week for months, to perfect the show ahead of the three performances.

The students also created the elaborate set.

Executive Principal Neville Coles also was full of praise for the pupils’ hard work and success.

He said: “The music, acting, stage, lighting and everything was done incredibly professionally and it was great to see so many ex-students coming back to help out over the three nights.”
