Sixth form students charmed over 1,000 people during a week-long showing of Little Shop of Horrors.
The musical extravaganza took place at One sixth form centre in Ipswich last week and saw sell-out audiences for the final three days of the show.
Director, Sally Robinson said: “This is by far the best show we have done.
“It’s the best cast I’ve worked with (at One) and the fact that the performers are all either going on, or hoping to go on, to top performing arts schools says it all.”
Ms Robinson thanked the students and staff at One for their hard work and dedication and said the audience reaction had been tremendous.

Students from a variety of different courses had roles in the show, which came to prominence in 1986 thanks to a film created by Frank Oz starring Rick Moranis and Steve Martin.
Charlie Cocker, 18, who played the character of Orin Scrivello, said: “The show itself is very funny.

“It has a lot of tongue in cheek humour and it takes the mick out of cheesy musicals in a clever way.”
In last year’s production of Hairspray, Charlie played a female character, but he said this year he enjoyed playing the part of a “very angry man”.
Chris Vince, 18, playing the character of Mr Mushnik, said it was great seeing the show come to life.
