STUDENTS from Walney School took to the stage in an epic performance of their annual summer show.

Pupils were singing 'we will, we will, rock you' and much more in their production of Schools Will Rock You on Monday July 8 and Tuesday July 9.

Auditions for the show were first held in January and started rehearsals soon after.

Miss Eason from the school's performing arts department said: "After the success of the hit movie ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ released in 2018, it seemed to fit perfectly and we were ready to take on the challenge of ‘Queen'.

"It’s safe to say that it has absolutely been a challenge and we have no idea how they hit those notes.

"Listening to the students sing and enjoy Queen repertoire makes me so proud and each time I hear them sing ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ it gives me goose-bumps.

"It was especially exciting because all of the set, props, costume and tech was designed, created and accomplished by our very own students who have worked tirelessly to help bring the performance to life.

"I am so proud to announce that both evenings were completely sold out.

"The pupils were absolutely buzzing when we told them they would have a full house for both performances – it made them want to smash it even more.

"I am very proud of all of the students who have pulled together to create something wonderful and memorable for the community and we cannot wait for next year.

"It really is ‘a kind of magic’."

A spokesperson from the school's library said via social media: "Very proud of all the cast, especially the Librarians, who took part in Schools Will Rock You.

"So privileged to rock out with a great bunch of students (and staff)."

Prior to the performance pupils from the school also took part in the school's Walney's Got Talent show.

A spokesperson said of the talent show: "Well done to all who took part, you all were so brave to get up and do your acts. Congratulations to Scarlet who was this years winner from South Walney."
