Students put on musical in 24 hours for charity

A group of students from the University of Reading have staged a musical in just 24 hours. They have taken on the challenge to raise money for a brain tumour charity.

The proceeds will go to the Ollie Young Foundation, which supports research into how brain tumours affect children. The performers had just 24 hours in which to announce, cast, rehearse and stage their live performance of Beauty and the Beast. Sam Simmons told us about the project.
