STUDENTS at Melbourn Village College have been wowing audiences with a production of Fiddler on the Roof.
The play was performed over three nights in the college hall, with talented students taking roles both on and off stage.
Head of performing arts, Paul Belbin, said: "The 70 students involved in the production learnt a great deal about team work and meeting deadlines.
"The performers also realised that in the theatre, lighting, sound, stage design, makeup, marketing and stage management are of equal importance when putting on a show."

Beside him, Year 10 student Jade Harley-Smith also impressed as Golde.
