BRIDLINGTON School students brought the West End to town with their version of the hit musical We Will Rock You.

Complete with colourful intergalactic costumes, the talented cast of students transformed themselves into Bohemian Rebels, evil tyrants and pop stars living on the planet Mall 200 years into the future.

Written by Ben Elton and featuring music from Queen, We Will Rock You charts the battle between the Bohemian Rebels to bring live music back to Mall after musical instruments were outlawed by the planet’s ruler Killer Queen.

The show, which ran at the school from February 14 to February 17, proved a huge hit with audiences.

One satisfied customer was Pamela Dalley of Roundhay Road who contacted the Free Press to praise everyone involved in the production.

She said: “What an astonishingly professional performance!

“The singing was superb, and the lead singer/actors excellent. Choreography was tight, acting was believable, and the energy of everyone involved palpable.”

Nina Hardy, head of music at Bridlington School was also delighted with the show’s success and said: “The cast had been rehearsing hard since September and their commitment and dedication has been extremely impressive.

“The band, lead by Mr Johnston, featured many of the school’s talented musicians with a special mention going to lead guitarist Martin Secker who spent many hours perfecting the technically difficult Brian May solos.

“It was a huge success once again!”
