Tom MacRae has returned to his old school in Bugbrooke as his musical "Everybody's Talking About Jamie" wows the audiences in London

"I loved doing the school plays, my exam grades were ok, but I wasn't brilliant at that kind of thing, I like kind of daydreaming, which, luckily, I've turned into a career, so it's worked out alright, but, I used to love doing the school plays and the first time I ever stood on a stage was here, the first time I ever wrote anything, because one of the school plays where we got to contribute lines to, was here and now I get to do it for a living."
