Four students from The Avon Valley School and Performing Art College will appear on stage at Rugby Theatre in CS Lewis’s classic, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

Tom Wood and Cait Bridgman both from Year 11, Year 10 Emily Gyles, and Year 9 student Dylan Goodwin meet director Helen Dulcamara, and the other cast members, for rehearsals which take place three times a week.

Tom Wood, Year 11, said, “This will be my first show at Rugby Theatre. Being a part of the cast has made me more confident and I am really enjoying my involvement.”

Helen Dulcamara said: “Each one of them has brought their own special skills and style to the cast of 40 young people. As Tom said, his confidence has grown and grown throughout the rehearsal process and that is why I love directing young people.”

It runs from October 22-29. For tickets contact (01788) 541234.
