THE GLAMOUR of 1940s Hollywood is coming to the Meridian School as pupils prepare for their latest production, City of Angels.

The play is a dramatic tale of intrigue and deceit, and received much critical acclaim during its stint on Broadway in the early 1990s.

Head of drama at Meridian, Lauren Phillips, said: "The story is about a writer who is penning a new film noir script, and is surprised to find the characters coming to life.

"This is the most ambitious play we've put on so far, in terms on the lighting we've got and the complexity of dance routines.

"About 100 students are involved."

City of Angels is being performed tonight (Thursday), Friday, and Saturday evenings, with shows beginning at 7.30pm.

* Sixth-form science students at Meridian enjoyed a talk from Royston ­archaeologist Sylvia Beamon.

Mrs Beamon, who is an expert on the Royston Cave, came to speak to A-Level physics students as part of their Digging up the Past topic.

The students have been learning about aspects of physics, such as electromagnetic radiation, diffraction, radioactivity, and photoelectrons through archaeology.

A spokesman for the school said: "The talk by Mrs Beamon gave them an insight into how physics is used by archaeologists.
