Pupils’ musical venture

A WEST End musical inspired by rock legends Queen was brought to a Furness stage by students

Walney School performed the junior version of We Will Rock You in February.

The musical is based on the songs of Queen, once fronted by the late Freddie Mercury.

The story is set in a future where all expression of creativity is banned by a huge corporation, until a group of rebels strive to change things.

Walney School’s version, Schools Will Rock You, proved popular with audiences. Almost 50 pupils from across all the school years spent weeks gearing up for the production.

The Walney pupils performed over three days and also to an audience of primary school children.

Michelle Larcombe, head of creative arts at the secondary school said the cast had excelled themselves and she is extremely proud of all the hard work they have put into the shows.

The students put their own stamp on the songs.

The show and a raffle prize of an electric guitar was raising money for the Mercury Phoenix Trust, the AIDS charity organisation.
