The school’s head of drama, Holly Keeble, says: “This is a fun and uplifting show with lots of twists and turns. We’re really proud of the production and how hard working our cast and band have been.”

“After the huge success of ‘Little Shop Of Horrors’ last year, we had a huge interest in the production and this year is our largest cast to date.”
