Students at Sir John Deane’s college are rocking the boat this term.

The sixth formers are in rehearsal for the Tony award-winning show Guys and Dolls, which will be presented from February 24-26.

In a joyous and vibrant celebration of 1950s New York, Guys and Dolls centres on the romantic misadventures of four Broadway characters and includes musical numbers including My Time of Day, Luck be a Lady and Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat.

The production is directed by theatre studies teacher Rebeccah Homer with choreography by dance teacher Esther Wingate and musical direction from music technology teacher Tim Murphy.

Rebeccah said: “After months in rehearsal, it’s been a total joy to see the production really come together. We have some very talented performers and I am confident we will produce a not-to-be-missed, high quality production.”

Head of performing arts Alison Richards added: “This is an exciting production and a great opportunity for our students to gain excellent performance experience.”
