AUDIENCES were transported back to 1950s New York when Ballard School performed Guys and Dolls.

The show sold out for three nights at the Regent Centre in Christchurch, the first time pupils had taken a show to a public theatre. The cast was accompanied by a 15-piece student orchestra and pupils were also responsible for set design, sound and lighting.

Ballard School is an independent, co-educational school in New Milton.
