A budding young performer from Priory Ruskin Academy in Grantham has made his directorial debut to a sold-out audience.

The inspirational Year 11 student, Lewis Fitt, came up with the idea of directing and producing a show, based on the popular West End production ‘Jersey Boys’, after he performed in the hugely successful school production of Les Miserables over the summer.

After eight weeks of intensive rehearsals, including casting, choreographing, lighting and directing, Lewis and his cast were met by a standing ovation from the audience on Friday evening.

Victoria Rossington, assistant headteacher and musical director, said: “I am so proud to have worked with such a dedicated and talented cast. The show was a huge success and the work they have put in embodies the ‘Ruskin Respects’ ethos evident throughout the academy.”
