Students set for FAME with performance at Grand Theatre

Budding stars of the West End wowed audiences when they showcased their performance skills on a professional stage.

Talented Highfields students Jessica Olford, Jordanne Farley-Moss, Molly Birch and Maya Chima were among the cast of Musical Comedy Company’s (MUSCOM) high-energy production of FAME.

The show was performed at the historic Grand Theatre to rave reviews.

Sharon Bishop, Highfields’ Head of Performance, who was in the audience to watch the show, said: “It is wonderful that our students build on the work we do in school by nurturing their talents in their free time.

“I was very proud to watch our students putting on such professional performances in this fantastic production. It was a great experience for them to perform at the Grand Theatre and I look forward to seeing their names in lights one day.”
