Students at Sewell Park College in Norwich held a fun-fuelled evening of entertainment when they staged their production “Austin Powers – The Musical”.

The show played for two nights – February 13 and 14 – to packed audiences who didn’t want to miss out on laughs and some well-known musical numbers.

They followed the story of Austin Powers – international spy – and his archenemy Dr Evil, who planned to hold the world hostage unless Austin and his beautiful partner Vanessa Kensington (played by Jodie Tooke) could stop him.

The cast sang and danced its way through songs from the 1960s to today which got the audience going.

The laughs came from the two main characters – Austin, played by Cameron Brown, and Dr Evil, played by Sam Leech.

They were supported by a cast with a full chorus line and performances and dances set to Michael Jackson’s Smooth Criminal, Madonna’s Material Girl and Village People’s YMCA to whoops and standing ovations from the sellout crowd.

The idea for this year’s show was developed by the college’s drama teachers Laura Tomkins and Sarah Wood, who was the performance director.

She said: “This show has been an absolute pleasure to share with the students who have once again shown that they are an extremely talented group of young people who are a credit to their school.

“This is an excellent example of how drama and the arts can really enhance and develop skills in our young people.

“They have developed in confidence and ability as well as developing many life skills such as teamwork and leadership along the way.

“It is a pleasure to see how they have grown personally as a result of such a production and I am very proud of them all.

“I’m thinking about the next production already.”
