STUDENTS packed out their school hall for three nights in a row when they performed a musical filled with gangsters, stowaways, and lovers.

From the youngest year sevens through to the sixth-formers, the Newport Free Grammar School pupils pulled out show-stopping performances on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night.

Deputy head Rachel Baxter said: "There was a really great atmosphere. What shone through was how much they all enjoyed it.

"It was a real ensemble with students of all ages taking part; everyone was really supportive of each other."

The pupils performed Anything Goes, a musical comedy set aboard the ocean liner SS American, which sees stowaway Billy Crocker become entangled in a passionate affair. The production involved a cast of 30 students and 50 staff and pupils.
