Students from Bridport rocked on in a brilliant production of the hit musical We Will Rock You.

The musical and dancing talents of the students at the Sir John Colfox Academy were showcased in the production of Queen and Ben Elton's musical last week.

A large cast from across the Bridport school were involved, from year 7 to the sixth form, including the student backstage and technical crew.

A talented student band also provided live music featuring lots of hits by Queen performed throughout the show.

Adam Shelley, headteacher of the Sir John Colfox Academy, said: “It was a wonderful show, full of brilliant performances.

"The musical, acting, comedy and dancing talent on show was fantastic – well done to all students involved including the technical crew.

“I’d also like to say a huge thank you to all staff who made such a fantastic event possible, especially Mrs Emma Holder, head of drama, Ms Kimberly Langdon, drama teacher, Mr Brian Hocking, head of music and Mr Brendan Jackson, forest school teacher who supported the band.”

Emma Holder, head of drama, added: “I was incredibly proud of everyone’s performances and our technical team. The show was full of energy, great musical performances, acting, dancing and comedy talent and was huge fun to watch – well done to everyone involved, particularly our lead stars Lily, Sherwin, Iris, Mathew, Toby, Tallulah and Jacob.      

Proceeds from the ticket sales will be used for equipment for the school's drama department.
