Musical a huge success

LOCKYER District High School students sang and danced their way into the hearts of audiences last week as they performed their school musical over three shows.

The students put on a flawless performance as they entertained audiences with their own version of the widely popular Bugsy Malone musical last Thursday and Saturday.

Director Sharonlee Mortensen said casting for the musical began at the end of last year and the success of the show was the culmination of several months of dedicated preparation from both students and staff.

“The show is and has been a fantastic success from all the students' hard work,” she said.

“It's a really talented group of students and they really warmed to their roles.

“They all came together and you could see they were enjoying themselves.”

The 1920s themed school musical involved about 75 students, including the band dressed up as gangsters, singers and wannabe Hollywood starlets as they performed a number of funny and entertaining scenes following the escapades of ex-boxer Bugsy Malone.

The last show of the musical was performed on Saturday night with more than a hundred people in attendance.
