TOWN fans had a chance to put the blues behind them with a special musical show about their beloved team.
Huddersfield's promotion hopes were put on hold when they were pipped at the post for automatic promotion by Torquay last Saturday.
Students at Bretton Hall had written the show Huddersfield Town The Musical which would have been a wonderful celebration of success as is staged 80 years since Town won the First Division championship in 1924.
Instead it came across as a symbol of hope that Town will triumph in the play-offs and grab glory at Cardiff's massive Millennium Stadium.
The musical - involving 23 actors and a backstage crew of six - was staged at the McAlpine Stadium last night and watched by fans from Huddersfield Town Supporters Club.
Proceeds from the performance will go to the Huddersfield Town Survival Trust.
The musical was written by students from the School of Performance and Cultural Industries at Bretton Hall near Flockton which is part of Leeds University.
It was edited by the tutor-in-charge, Arthur Pritchard, who is a Town season ticket holder.
He said: "It's a real family show and is set in modern times, but also draws in Town's glory years in the First Division."
The musical features 15 songs including one penned by Huddersfield Town supporter Frank Appleyard, of Shepley.
Others include the old Terriers song It's Our Night Out Again Tonight when Town won the FA Cup in 1922 and the Holmfirth anthem Pratty Flowers.
The story for the musical begins last year when Town were relegated to Division Three.
An advert in a match programme appeals for a women's team to bring back pride to the town.
But when the team called Slapperthwaite Ladies starts playing - and playing badly - they realise they need help.
And they get it from Town's legendary manager from the 1920s, Herbert Chapman.
