STUDENTS had a master class in American high school culture when members of the Worthing Thunder basketball club visited Davison High School, in Worthing, last week.
Team members Rory Spencer and Terrell Bell led a workshop in basketball skills with the cast and crew of Davison’s forthcoming production of High School Musical. After an energetic workout, the players took part in a question-and-answer session regarding life in high school ‘across the pond’ in the USA. Vicki Stitt, leader of the Thundergirls and choreographer of the play, said: “This was a fantastic opportunity for the Davison students to practise their accents, work on their teamwork and generally have tons of fun.
“Davison has decided to produce this modern-day classic as not only is it hugely popular with the students, it also has the underlying theme of being yourself and sticking together, which is such a positive message in our celebrity-obsessed world.”
Terrell Bell said after the workshop: “It was awesome working with the students and I hope to have given them heaps of hints to make a great show.”
The play is due to be performed in early July and will feature a chorus and cheerleading dance moves.
Students from The Angmering School have also leant a hand with the male leads.
