March was an exciting and busy time for Walton High Performing Arts who presented their eagerly anticipated version of the hit Queen musical We Will Rock You.
Performed by a cast of 60 students ranging from Y7 - Y13, an excellent band and a fantastic, student led, stage management team, the company rehearsed tirelessly ensuring a slick and professional production was achieved. With such challenging musical numbers, precise choreography, an amusing script alongside amazing lighting and sound, the show was a big success and we are so proud of the hard work and talent of every single person involved.
Thank you to everyone who came along and supported us. Seeing the audience join in and sway their arms during We Are The Champions and a standing ovation at the end of Bohemian Rhapsody really was an accolade to the performers.
