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.
