The Anglo’s recent production of Schools Will Rock You unwrapped like a delicious box of chocolates; with a treat for everyone. The juke box musical, based on the songs of rock super group Queen, leads the audience into a futuristic world where the magic of music is lost through mass production and then rediscovered.
With spectacular lighting and sound bursting from every corner of the hall, this unique production, set across 3 stages, had the audience of parents, staff and pupils mesmerised from the start as they feasted on an impressive array of singing and dancing. Presented over 4 evenings and with 2 different casts for the lead roles all students from Years 8 to U6th got the opportunity to perform in the dazzling production. With students singing and dancing on scaffolding high above the audience there really was a sense that something very special was happening. The tremendous hard work and creativity of staff and students shows that Anglo really can say ‘We are the Champions’.
