HELLO Dolly opens at Aylsham High next week, marking a decade of lavish musical productions at the school.
Tickets have been selling fast for the latest show, an indication of the reputation for high-class performances that the school has earned over the past 10 years.
Hazel Martin, who has directed every school musical, says this is probably their most ambitious to date.

And, on top of the acting demands, cast and crew have been battling illness. 'We've had three viruses going round the school and I don't think we've had one rehearsal where everybody's been there!' said Mrs Martin.
Set in turn-of-the-20th-century New York, Hello Dolly stars matchmaking widow Dolly Gallagher Levi (Catherine Batch) who has been asked by wealthy but grumpy Horace Vandergelder (Alexander Salzedo) to find him a wife. Dolly decides that she must be the one to marry him. She is also asked by artist Ambrose Kemper (Jack Bonner) to help him marry Horace's niece Ermengarde (Catherine Bullough), a match which her uncle opposes.
