Wilfred Kemsley, of Year 10, and Aimee Butcher, in Lower Sixth, took on the leading parts of Tevye and Golde and were roundly clapped and cheered as the curtain came down.

Danielle Clarke, principal of St Joseph’s College, said: “As principal, my role keeps me one step back from some of the powerful and creative work taking place in the college on a daily basis, so when I went to see the opening night performance it was my first sight of the production. I was blown away by the talent of the students in delivering a superb finished product.

“They and the staff directing and supporting them have given us a show to remember and a great night out. They have given themselves some wonderful memories, which I am sure they will keep all their lives.”
