The fast-paced, lively and entertaining production of Hairspray was performed by Friends’ School students last week during a matinee and three sell out evening shows.

After months of rehearsals the cast, which included students from Year 7 to Sixth Form, performed each of the four shows to a packed and delighted audience.

Head of Friends’ School, Anna Chaudhri, said: “It was wonderful to see so many students from across the year groups be involved in the production, whether it was part of the cast, chorus, band or crew. Everyone involved in the drama, music and dance departments have worked incredibly hard to put on such a successful production.

“Our students shone on stage and made it clear to all those who supported the show that we have some extraordinary talent here.”
