Young stars make their stage debut
STAGECOACH Theatre Arts Uxbridge brought the house down at the weekend, as young members performed to sell-out audiences.
More than 200 children, aged four to 18, took part in performances on Saturday and Sunday at the Winston Churchill Theatre, with more than 340 in the audience.
It was the first year the school, which runs classes at Oak Farm Primary School, has produced a showcase involving all its students.
Rebecca Odedra, Stagecoach Uxbridge’s principal, said: “It was amazing. The performers were fantastic and I am immensely proud; there were so many comments on how professional and committed they were.”
Audience members declared the show “sensational” and “worthy of top West End reviews”. Sunday’s performance was attended by Hillingdon Mayor George Cooper and Mayoress, Cllr Judith Cooper, who congratulated the students backstage.
The group has been in Hillingdon for almost 20 years.
