Students from Helena Romanes School in Dunmow are performing the musical of Loserville next week.

The three-night performance, which features students from Year 7 to Year 13, will take place from Wednesday, July 12 to Friday, July 14.

Loserville tells the story of Michael Dork, a computer hacker in 1971 who wants to beat a large computing conglomerate to sending the first email.

Along the way he meets a girl, falls out with his best friend and defeats his arch-enemy - the high school jock Eddie.

The musical is about loyalty and trust, with the ultimate message that nobody is a loser.

Mrs Stewart, head of drama and media, said: "It has been a real pleasure to work with this creative Helena Romanes Team that features both students and staff. 


"From the singing sessions during Friday lunch times to the rehearsals after school, they have all shown immense commitment and dedication to not only the drama department but also to their school community. 

"I have especially loved this year how some of the songs/lyrics by James Bourne have resonated with some of our students allowing them to relate and not feel alone!"

Tickets cost £5 for concessions and £6.50 for adults. They can be purchased in person at the school's main reception, via or through ParentPay for existing parents and carers.
