THERE’S going to be lots of ‘love, love, love’ at Prince Henry’s Grammar School next month.

The Otley school’s big annual show this year is the musical Our House, which is based on the hit songs of Madness.

A cast featuring students of all ages will give three 7pm performances from Wednesday, February 6 to Friday, February 8.

The story tells how, on the night of his 16th birthday, Joe Casey takes the girl of his dreams, Sarah, out on their first date. In an effort to impress her Joe breaks the law and, when the police turn up, a split-second decision forces him to choose between himself and his heart.

Two very different paths - one where he stays to face the music, the other which seems him flee and leave Sarah - then unfold before him.

Our House was the winner of the 2003 Olivier Award for Best New Musical and is written by Tim Firth, who wrote The Band and Calendar Girls with Gary Barlow.

A Prince Henry’s spokesoman said: “The show has a feast of 1980s music with songs from Madness.

“Numbers such as House of Fun, Tomorrow’s Just Another Day, Our House, Driving in My Car and Baggy Trousers will have you dancing in your seat.

“Every year the cast and crew at Prince Henry’s pull out the stops to provide a really entertaining evening. Oh what fun they’ll have…baggy trousers are not compulsory!”

Will McPherson and Emeli Mumford will play the lead roles of Joe and Sarah. Both students have been Leeds City Council’s Breeze Has Talent finalists and Emeli recently released her Dear Santa Christmas charity single for Save the Children.

Tickets for Our House cost £8 for adults or £6 for senior citizens and schoolchildren, and are available from the school’s reception where payment can be made by cheque or cash.

Reserved seating will be in place so those wishing to go are advised to book early to get the seats they want. For more details call reception at Prince Henry’s on (01943) 463524.
