Fascinating flop...
When Eleanor Drew left Salad Days (her place taken by Virginia Vernon) she played Naomi Tighe in School, an adaptation of T. W. Robertson's play, at Birmingham repertory Theatre in 1957. When the production transferred to the Princes Theatre in March 1958, Jack Hylton billed her (below the title) as the show's star, but it seemed a nominal gesture. School's composer, Christopher Whelen, remembers that 'the London production was hideous', but Drew attracted good notices or singing 'The Letter Song'. There was another solo, 'Handsome Stranger' and a duet with Michael Blakemore 'I Hang On Your Lips'. Some of the numbers from School were seen on TV, but the score was not recorded. The show had feeble reviews and shut up shop after 22 performances.
