Head of drama David Aldred said: “We staged Rockbeth for family and friends of the school, and it was so well received that we started to think it could be something we share with a wider audience. So, the idea of taking our production to the world’s largest arts festival, the Edinburgh Fringe, was born. The students have put such a huge amount of energy in to create this wonderful show and we would like to give them the opportunity to experience performing on a bigger stage.
“We feel Rockbeth will highlight the benefits that students with neurodiversity gain from performing, and showcase the talent that so often remains undiscovered.
“There are students in the production who have been on an extraordinary journey to achieve the confidence and skills to perform at this level.”
Tenors Un Limited will perform a fundraising concert at More House School on Friday, May 19. The tenors will sing a diverse repertoire of classical and modern songs, as well as performing with the school’s junior choir and the cast of Rockbeth. Tickets cost £20 for adults and £15 for concessions with all proceeds going towards taking Rockbeth to the Edinburgh Fringe.
