THIS group of talented Southampton pupils wowed the crowds with their performance of one of Broadway’s most popular musicals.

Students from St Mary’s College in Bitterne Park got into character to perform Hairspray over three nights in front of capacity audiences.

Proud head teacher Craig Lickley said: “It has been a resounding success.

“We have had capacity audiences each night and their energy and enthusiasm shone through.

“It is a breakaway from the traditional plays we do, and the live band has made a difference.

“They have all done an exceptional job.”
