‘PROM Queen’ is the title of the production performed by more than 70 pupils of St Hugh’s Academy.

The students in Years 7 to 10 have been rehearsing for the summer production for some time, and performed it in front of 900 primary school pupils, families and friends.

It is a self-penned prooduction written by the school’s performance department and incpired by the popular TV series Glee.

‘Prom Queen’ tells the story of a young girl’s desire to be Prom Queen at her school and the difficulties she faces.

Corrina Riccardo plays the lead, Frankie, who has the dress, the hair and the limo but does she have the boy? New boy Blake, played by Ben Chappell, seems the perfect date, but what happens when Frankie realises he is a bully?

Dance teacher Gillian Brady choreographed the routines. She said: “When we embarked on the project, we were totally unprepared for the sheer volume of talent at St Hugh’s. It has been a pleasure to work with so many talented students.”

A four-piece staff band, led by music teacher Robert Charlton, provided music.
