Students enjoy playing popstars
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.
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.
