Students from One performed their latest effort in front of over 1100 people.

The show was originally a 1992 film starring Whoopi Goldberg and was turned into a musical in 2006.

This particular performance came on the back of an extremely well received version of Chicago back in January 2019 and according to Director of Curriculum, Lois Hinsley, Sister Act helped showcase the work of talented students at one of the biggest sixth forms in the county.

She said, “The show went down a storm and we’ve had some amazing feedback from the audience.

“Some people were saying that Avril Maponga (who played the main character called Delores) is good enough to perform on the West End and Saranna Parlone (who played Mother Superior) also received rave reviews. All students involved in the production were amazing and they should feel proud of all they achieved last week.

“Overall it was a real team effort and this has been our best-selling show ever. Thanks to everyone who helped make the show such a success, and to all those who came to see it.”
