A performing arts student put her creativity to the test by putting on a show at school.

As part of her performing arts course, Buxton Community School year 13 student, Ellie Hibbert, put on a production of Willy Russell’s ‘Our Day Out’.

There was a dress rehearsal for staff and then shows on two separate evenings in the school’s drama studio. Rebecca McDonal, who played Mrs Kay, and Joe O’Connor, who was Mr Briggs, were described as being ‘exceptional’, however the whole cast were said to have put in a great performance.
