News > Legendary rock star lends support to school play

Added on 02-Apr-2009

A ROCK star has lent a hand to a school play.



Queen guitarist Brian May stunned youngsters and staff at Layer de la Haye Primary School, when he made a special CD for their school production.



Children wrote to the 61-year-old informing him about their Year 3 and Year 4 Easter show, the Story of Moses, which is set to the music of Queen.



On Brian’s CD, he said: “I read all your letters and something clicked inside me, and I thought I should contribute to this occasion.



“I read your letters and thought ‘these people must care a lot to take such trouble in writing such great letters’. I hope you have a wonderful show.”



He also played a guitar solo, which the school hopes to use to open its musical.



Year 4 teacher Peter Mebbitt said: “We felt really lucky and he was really sincere.



“The children were filled with awe and wonder when we played them the message.”



Year 3 teacher Gary Tuttlebee added: “We always thought it was a one in a million chance he would reply, so we couldn’t really believe it.”



The production will be performed at the school on April 1 and 2.
