Students at Honiton Community College rock audiences.
Students at Honiton Community College rocked audiences - bringing to life a popular West End hit.
Schools will Rock You, which is based on the musical by Ben Elton and Queen, is the latest production to take centre stage at the college following on from the success of Out of Time and Les Miserables.
It follows the journey of Galileo Figaro (Alex Jackson) and Scaramouche (Beth Hibbert) to discover classic rock in a futuristic world 300 years from now where live music and instruments are banned.
The world, now known as the iPlanet, is under the control of Killer Queen (Beth Sillitoe), the leader of Globalsoft Corporation, aided by her chief of police Khashoggi (Joe Binmore) who keeps a close eye on the Bohemium rebels.
The production was full of classic Queen hits: Radio Gaga, I want to break free, Killer Queen, Another One Bites the Dust, We will rock you and of course Bohemian Rhapsody.
Beth Sillitoe put in a fantastic performance as the feisty and tyrannical leader Killer Queen.
Joe Binmore was very entertaining as Killer Queen’s evil henchman Khashoggi.
The whole cast put on a tremendous show enhanced by the great acting, singing and choreography on the night, which would give even the most seasoned West End performers a run for their money.
