42nd Street 14th to 17th March

42nd Street” is the 20th musical to be performed at Aylsham High School with 42 students who range from 11 to 16 years old. Opening night is Wednesday 14th March at 7.30pm with a limited number of tickets still available.

 Show producer and Instructor at Aylsham High School Tanya Wiseman says, ‘the decision to perform 42nd Street was an easy one because the songs are incredible and are guaranteed to get everyone’s feet tapping by the end of the opening number. The students all love the costumes, and the set. Both of which add a certain touch of glitz and glamour. It is fantastic that former head boy Shaun Taylor has returned to choreograph two of the show’s most iconic tap dance routines. "To think we now have 42 competent tap dancers that can tap in perfect unison is phenomenal". The students have all embraced the chance to learn something new and as a group of staff we’re all impressed with how they’ve conducted themselves in rehearsals. We’re also delighted to have secured sponsorship from newly-formed coach company Wrights Coaches’.

 Matthew Wright, Director of Wrights Coaches, who is the show’s main sponsor said, “The opportunity to support Aylsham High School with their latest production was a chance I couldn’t let pass, especially for their anniversary year. As a new business in the local area, Aylsham High School has been incredibly supportive, and this is a way of giving something back to the school for putting their faith in me. The quality of the performances which come from the school are always impressive, and I’m honoured to be associated with them. The students obviously enjoy their extra curricular study, and it’s great to see them doing something they relish and learn new skills at the same time. I think its great these students are getting the opportunity to do something they enjoy. If I can support that in anyway, I will do!”


42nd Street runs at Aylsham High School from Wednesday 14th to Saturday 17th March with two performances on the Saturday. (2.30pm & 7.30pm). Tickets are available from the School Reception (Wednesday Lunchtimes) or at
