A MUSICAL written, directed and produced by a talented teenager raised more than £1,000 for Children In Need.
Chenice Clarke spent three months preparing the sell-out musical based on the popular film, High School Musical.
The dazzling show was performed by 30 students, aged from nine to 14, at Westbourne Sports College, in Marlow Road, Ipswich.
Miss Clarke, 14, of Bramford Road, said: “There are so many talented young children and they deserve to be seen so I thought it would be a good way of showcasing their talents and supporting the Children In Need charity, which I have watched every year since I was little.
“I love acting and so do the other children and some of them have had some knock backs at auditions and things and I thought they deserve to have their confidence boosted.”
The two-hour musical was enjoyed by parents and staff as well as other pupils at the school and the mayor of Ipswich, Inga Lockington.

Miss Clarke said: “It was hard work but it went really well and we raised lots of money and everyone made lots of new friends.
“It was a great success.”
Miss Clarke's sister, Kia, was also involved in the musical and their mum, Gwendolyn, fed the young performers during rehearsals.
The show was performed on November 16 at Westbourne Sports College.
