BRIGHT lights will illuminate a school musical production when pupils take to the stage next month.

Students from St Birinus School and Didcot Girls’ School are hard at work rehearsing for the production of Guys and Dolls from February 4-7 at St Birinus.

Former Henley College student Jack Linaker has been drawn in to lend a helping hand by supplying the lighting for the show.

His company J L Lighting Ltd has worked with lighting staff on the latest series of BBC show Room 101, as well as ITV talent contest The X Factor.

The 23-year-old from Cholsey said: “It’s a fantastic opportunity to give something back to the kids that are at the school.

“For me, it’s really a great opportunity to show them what I do for a living and try and inspire them.”
