Seven schools took to the stage to perform Nora’s Ark, the jazz musical, at the Gala Theatre, in Durham City in the UK on January 28, 2013. The schools involved were: Durham High School for Girls, Howletch Lane Primary, Ouston Junior, Finchale Primary, Bowburn Junior, Shincliffe CofE Primary and Acre Rigg Junior.
More than 100 youngsters were part of a one-night only production. The show was staged following just two days of large-scale rehearsals.
High School headmistress Lynne Renwick said: “Nora’s Ark is a marvellous opportunity for Durham High School for Girls to work in partnership with local primary schools and give young people the opportunity to perform in a professional theatre.”
