Students from Plympton Academy wowed packed out audiences recently
with their stunning performance of Renegades in the Ring.

With complex song and dance routines, as well as aerial acrobatics,
the cast were challenged in every aspect of performance and dared to
try things that they had never experienced before.

Jo Crook, Director of Performing Arts at Plympton Academy said; "I
couldn't be prouder of the students. They have risen to the challenge
and in doing so have created something that they should be very proud
of. This level of performance tradition is still in its very early
stages at Plympton Academy but the students have demonstrated a
hunger, drive and passion towards the process that has set some very
high standards for the future.”

The students, from Year 7 to Year 12, demonstrated incredible team
work and camaraderie as they worked together tirelessly to create an
amazing show. The live band was led by Plympton Academy’s Head of
Music, Nicky Clapson, and created an exciting and foot tapping
soundtrack throughout the performances.

“I am very lucky to have such a fantastic team to work with,” said Jo
Crook. “We share a vision for our students and they have put in many
hours to facilitate such high quality performances from every one of
our students who took part in the production.”
