The three performances last week played to full houses - and the Thursday evening show was the final show in the “old building” before tbhis summer’s move to the new school campus. All of the cast, crew and backstage helpers played their part in making the production such a success.Musical director David Birse, principal teacher of music, said, “There were outstanding performances, both acting and singing, from all the principals, ably backed by an extremely strong chorus who through their lively performances, hugely contributed to the success of the show.

“We are very fortunate to be able to work with such superb pupils here at Ellon Academy. We look forward to seeing you all next year, but in the theatre of our new school.”
