Summer Show 2019
Our Summer Show is without a doubt one of our yearly highlights and gives us an opportunity to showcase all of the fantastic work our students have put in throughout the year. In our final term, we take a step away from our IDTA syllabus work and each class puts together a routine choreographed by our talented teachers. This year we also featured several of our British Arts Awards entries giving those students one final opportunity to perform the routines which they have had such success with throughout the 2018-2019 competition.
This year our show was opened by our Saturday Musical Theatre Academy who performed several pieces from the Disney musical Newsies. The show then featured several themed sections, one popular section inspired by Literature saw some of our youngest students performing Beatrix Potter inspired pieces and others performing pieces from Alice in Wonderland and the Hunger Games.
Act 2 was opened by a brilliant Singing in the Rain tap section seeing students from ages 6-17 dancing together. Finally the show rounded off with our Saturday Musical Theatre Academy taking to the stage once again to perform a Blues Brothers inspired medley which had our audience dancing in their seats before our crowd pleasing finale to ‘Shut Up and Dance’ an Academy staple which all students and parents hold fond memories of as we always finish our shows dancing, clapping and singing along to this catchy tune.
