Stu­dents en­joy play­ing pop­stars

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Stu­dents at Lyn­field Col­lege are us­ing the school pro­duc­tion as a learn­ing op­por­tu­nity.

The 90s themed mu­si­cal Pop­stars will be a chance for the stu­dents to show off their tal­ent while also con­tribut­ing to­wards their NCEA cred­its.

Head of drama Su­san All­press says stu­dents put a huge amount of time and ef­fort into their ex­tracur­ric­u­lar per­for­mances. ‘‘Whether they per­form in the school pro­duc­tion, Polyfest, Bring it On or the an­nual Lyn­field Cul­tural Fes­ti­val, they per­form to a high stan­dard and de­serve to have their achieve­ments recog­nised.’’

Di­rected by Celia Ni­chol­son, the show tells the story of an am­bi­tious stu­dent who plots her fu­ture star­dom through the school tal­ent com­pe­ti­tion.

The team

of

15, chore­ographed by Sarah Jor­dan, have been re­hears­ing their Baby One More Time and Bye Bye Bye rou­tines.

In true 90s style, there will also be a boy-band com­pe­ti­tion. The cast is sup­ported by a live band con­ducted by Lisa Nor­man.

The show is at 7pm and will run from June 24 to 27 in the Lyn­field Col­lege hall. Tick­ets on the door or from the school re­cep­tion, phone 627 0600.
