The play was based on the adventures of Jack Sparrow from the Disney film’s Pirates of the Caribbean, and a quest for the spring of eternal youth.

Julien Laurent, head of the creative arts faculty, said: “This student-led production from the drama club is the result of a great team effort by all the students involved. They have shown great commitment, hard work and creativity to produce a fun show featuring lots of their own ideas.

“Sam and Nathan worked hard to produce the original story and script which has been brought to life with a great performance from the rest of the cast.

“It went very well with a full house.”

The production included acting and singing with a mixture of drama and comedy.
