School show attracts star audience

Castlebrook High School students recently showcased their musical talents in front of a star-studded audience. 

Students perfectly performed their rendition of ‘A Night on Broadway’ to excited spectators, including soap-star Gemma Atkinson and Strictly Come Dancing star Gorka Marquez.   

Sue Armstrong, Principal of the Bury-based academy, which is part of the Shaw Education Trust, said: “Our pupils have been working hard to perfect their performance, so it is exciting that they have the opportunity for it to be seen by a real star.”

Youngsters from a range of year groups took to the stage to demonstrate their acting, dancing and singing abilities in a show which was attended by the local actress.

Miss Atkinson, age 33, is an ex-pupil of the academy and keeps in regular contact with the school by mentoring inspiring actors in the local area.

Mrs Armstrong commented: “Gemma is a fantastic local inspiration to children interested in the performing arts, so her attendance is greatly anticipated by the cast.”
