YOUNG people from Waseley Hills High School organised and performed their own variety show – Explosion 14.
Some sixth-form students took the audience on a musical journey from the 1960s to the present with a dance, while others showcased their singing, dancing and acting skills.
Staff also had their moment in the spotlight, performing ‘Singing in the Rain’, using brightly coloured umbrellas.
Among the others taking to the stage for the show was Eddie Adkins who had only recently returned to school after being diagnosed with meningitis and spending time in hospital.
Eddie, who performed a heartfelt version of Whitney Houston’s I Have Nothing, said: “I was really upset to be off school for so long, I couldn’t wait to get back to doing what I love doing the most.”
Sue Clarke, the school’s sixth-form and careers administrator, said: “All the performances were given a thunderous applause from an enthusiastic audience – performers and spectators alike went home having enjoyed a very entertaining evening.”
