Rocking the boat in a stunning musical

Students from Ark 6th Form East Sussex and Ark Helenswood took to the seas this month in a dynamic production of a new musical Rock the Boat. Set on a transatlantic cruise ship in the 1970s the musical is a sparkling comedy featuring a host of eccentric characters and a string of unforgettable hits from the seventies.

Over one hundred students were involved in the performance as actors, dancers and technical teams collaborated to produce a brilliant show which was enjoyed by audiences over two nights. Students from local primary schools were also treated to a special matinee performance.

Rock the Boat was a stunning success and a tribute to the quality of Performing Arts across the two academies.
