BUDDING actors from John Cabot Academy impressed audiences with their annual production - a dazzling sci-fi musical.

More than 60 students from Year 7 to Post 16 took part in three performances of The Invisible Ray, which included high drama, comedy and song.

Year 8 student Florence Tunstall said: “Working to produce this show has been a difficult journey but has really improved my drama skills and I have enjoyed being a part of a production. My favourite part of it were the songs because they are unique and the whole thing was completely out of this world.”

Director Sam Bridges, specialist leader of education for drama, said: “We wanted to create a show that was fun, exciting and most importantly created enough roles for as many students as possible and an opportunity to shine. It was a fun family show filled with zany characters, catchy show tunes and plenty of drama.”
