Charles Darwin is the founder of modern evolutionary studies
A school has axed a musical on evolution over its suggestive lyrics and portrayal of Christian views.

Darwin Rocks, about the scientist Charles Darwin, was due to be performed by about 90 pupils at Hartford Manor Primary School, Cheshire, next month.

The move follows six "expressions of concern" from parents, the school said.

The musical's publishers Musicline said it was written by a Christian, adding "we can't ever recall having courted controversy before".

According to its website, the production is a "light-hearted look" at the work of Darwin, whose theory of evolution, published in 1859, shocked Victorian society by suggesting animals and humans shared a common ancestry.
