In January, three students from The Avon Valley School and Performing Arts College will be on stage in Rugby Theatre’s pantomime production of Cinderella.

The pantomime, which is set to delight audiences both young and old, has been written by Nick Marsh, a member of at Rugby Theatre, and will be on stage from Friday 11 January. Year 9 student Ellie-Mae Storey and fellow performing arts enthusiasts, Liliya Herring and Chelsea Hughes, who are in Year 8 will feature in the show as dancers.

Year 8, Garrick House, student Liliya Herring said “I have lots of opportunities to practise dancing not only at the theatre but also at school where I really enjoy my dance lessons and I take part in the school’s dance club. It’s really exciting to be on stage and to dance in front of an audience. I hope lots of people will come along to see Cinderella”.

Alison Davies, Headteacher, said, “From the name of our school it is clear that the performing arts play a big part in the education and experiences we offer our student. It is always a pleasure to see our students performing and I am pleased that members of the local community will see three of our students in this production.”
