A PORTISHEAD drama school is appealing for a songwriter to pen an original number for its forthcoming show.

The maritime history of Portishead is the subject of this year’s summer show for pupils at Cheryl Rowlands School of Drama.

Plans for the historical production have been kept closely under wraps so far because principal Cheryl wants it to be a surprise for her audience, but finding the right title number is proving difficult.

Cheryl said: “This is going to be such a special show and I feel it would be a terrific opportunity for a local songwriter to write an original title number for us.”

The school is now recruiting more pupils for the summer show and an open day offering free trial sessions to children interested in performing has been organised for February 9 at the youth centre in Harbour Road at 11.15am.
