Celebration show sees stars hit city
FORMER Mark Jermin pupils will be back in the city to help the school to celebrate 20 glorious years, with the opening night of their new show going ahead tomorrow.
The Story So Far traces the beginnings of the talent factory from its beginnings at Mark's mum's house, where he taught his sister and her friends some of the drama techniques he was learning at school, to its expansion throughout the UK.
And a gala evening will pull in EastEnders battle- axes Janine Butcher and Kat Slater.
Both Charlie Brooks, who plays vicious Janine, and Jesse Wallace, who plays the Queen Vic's raucous landlady, have links to the school, and they are expected at the bash.

Their soapland colleagues Polly Perkins and June Brown — Dot and Rose Cotton — will be along too.
Other familiar faces on board will be Waterloo Road's Georgia Henshaw, Rebecca Craven and Kaya Moore, with Ruth Madoc, John Hartson, Melanie Walters, Imogen Thomas and others joining the party.
The production itself runs until Saturday at Swansea's Grand Theatre, with the after show party breaking out the bubbly at Swansea's Waterfront Museum.
Charlie Brooks says: "I have seen many of Mark's shows in the past and have been impressed with each and every one of them.
"But from what he has told me, this one looks set to beat all the others hands down. We are all looking forward to visiting Swansea as well as coming the show, and knowing Mark so well I'm sure he will pull out all the stops."
Performances of The Story So Far go ahead at 7.30pm, with the party attendees ferried from the theatre to the museum via an open- top bus.
