The students have been very busy for the last few months rehearsing for this show with all year groups involved as actors, singers, orchestra, technical crew and marketing team.

The musical follows the story of a baker and his wife, who set off to procure enchanted items from four classic fairy tale characters in an attempt to reverse an evil witch’s curse.

Forced to face the consequences of their desires, the group of characters must work together if they are to defeat an angry giant and live happily ever after.

The show runs from January 31 to February 2. Performances begin at 7pm. Tickets, £8 for adults and £6 for concessions, and can be purchased by calling (0191) 200 8800.
