KINGSWOOD SCHOOL-UK CAST OF 60
11:00 - 21 February 2006 -THIS IS BRISTOL


Students at a Kingswood school will be donning leg warmers and shell suits for their annual college production this week. A cast of 60 students from John Cabot City Technology College have been rehearsing for their performance of the hit 1980s musical Fame.

There is a backstage crew of 20 pupils from years seven to 10 and a live band made up of mainly GCSE music students - and the show is selling out fast.

The show will run from today until Thursday and tickets can bought by calling 976 3000.

Steve Clarke, the head of music and musical director at the school, said: "We saw Fame in London and realised it would be just the right sort of show for John Cabot students to take on.

"We've given all of the leading roles to students in years nine and 10 and they've done a terrific job. The score isn't generally well known but there are some cracking musical numbers in there."

Drama teacher and show director Natalie Stewart said: "The students are really excited about performing in Fame. It has been a lot of hard work on their part including giving up their weekends, but it has all been worthwhile.

"Although we are a science and technology college the arts are very important to us. Drama and music play a crucial part every student's development."
