Stunning! Students turn on the style

A cast and crew of more than 70 students presented the musical comedy Hairspray at John Cabot Academy.

The show, performed over three nights to packed houses, with an additional matinee performance for pupils at local primary schools, boasted great numbers and electrifying dance routines.

The music was played by an exceptional 10-piece live band featuring students from Years 9-11.

Charlotte Grierson, the school’s curriculum leader for performing arts, said: “It has been a pleasure working with the students and staff. Their commitment and dedication beyond their normal school day is fantastic. “
