STUDENTS at a school in Yate are preparing to perform a show which tackles hard hitting issues, including addiction and diseases.

Brimsham Green School’s production of Rent will be taking place from Wednesday February 5, until Saturday February 8.

“We are performing the School’s Edition of the show,” one of the directors and school teacher Ms Hitchcock said.

“Even though the language has been modified for the audience, it still deals with complex issues.

“As such, we have also linked with the PSHE provision in the school and the cast are delivering assemblies on some of the issues.

“The show is already looking fantastic with a talented cast.

Tickets are priced at £6 each and available from the school.
