Exceptional students brought the house down with a superb musical performance - the first since Covid19 restrictions.

Jubilant crowds packed out The King Alfred School Academy in Highbridge, Somerset over three nights with the students’ performance of Little Shop of Horrors.

Students wowed with their student led band, with a brilliant student production team working on lighting, sound, marketing and hospitality.

Head of Drama Holly Keeble said: “The students’ production was as good as it gets. They are all absolute stars!


“We are so proud of all our amazing students, they have put on a truly professional and exhilarating show that we will all remember.

“Staff and students have worked so hard over the last 6 months to make sure we came come back with a bang and make this a show to remember.

She added: “It has been such a pleasure to work with such passionate and talented students in that time and I genuinely believe I had my perfect cast and band for this show.


“The feedback we've had from the show has been truly overwhelming and after opening night we then sold out Wednesday and Thursday from all the people in the community wanting to come and see the show after hearing about it's success.”

Principal Dan Milford said: “I had the pleasure of watching so many students perform in the school production. What an amazing school we have with brilliant students and staff.:”

TKASA is part of The Priory Learning Trust with a thriving school-based Sixth Form.
