TEENAGE pupils have worked so hard on a school performance that their teacher says it could be of “professional standard”.

The 14 and 15-year-olds from St Hild’s Church of England School, in King Oswy Drive, in Hartlepool, excelled themselves in their version of the West End hit Blood Brothers.

The students auditioned for the show back in April and rehearsals kicked off almost straight away.

And the group made a huge impression on their drama and performing arts teacher Danielle Kirk.

She told the Mail: “I’m really proud of them, so delighted with all of them. It’s been a privilege working with these kids.

“They’ve totally gone with it and worked so hard that I’d be happy seeing it on a professional stage.

“That’s how much they have raised their game, it’s on a different level. It’s absolutely incredible.

“It’d be such a shame if at least some of them didn’t go on to do acting professionally one day.”

The young actors performed to a very packed audience on Wednesday, Thursday and last night and gained rapturous applause.
