KEITH Grammar School pupils made a loud statement when they took to the stage this week.

KGS Dramatics members rocked the town in a two-night run of School of Rock – the Next Generation Musical.

Speaking after the first night, teacher Carol Wood said the show was "really great".

She added: "The cast were just great and we had a very smooth run. The second act was just awesome. Mrs Dawson’s recorder ensemble accompanied the Horace Green song in Act 1, which was quite different to the rock soundtrack.

"We have raised a lot of money to pay for a show next year and to take our cast and crew to see a show in Aberdeen in September.

"We had a fantastic audience.

"Our front of house raffle and refreshments went well. We were supported by several teachers and young people from across the school who did a lovely baking of biscuits.

"It is great to see that the school came together to support the show."

The show is based on the hit film, School of Rock, starring Jack Black as Dewey Finn as he turns a class of straight-A students into rock stars. The book of the film and the show was written by Julian Fellowes and the score by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Glenn Slater.
