PER­FORM­ING arts stu­dents from the Show­biz Academy took au­di­ences on a tour through pop­u­lar mu­si­cals in two sell-out shows. More than 120 pupils from the academy’s bases at Ash­ford School and Folke­stone Academy sung songs and per­formed scenes from shows in­clud­ing Hair­spray, Oliver!, Blood Broth­ers and Sweeney Todd. Among the per­form­ers were Miss Folke­stone, Leigh Sin­den, and car­ni­val court mem­bers Han­nah Gar­ton and Polina Ru­dichenko. One of the Show­biz Academy’s pa­trons, writer and broad­caster Trevor Clar­ing­bold, said: “It takes a lot of hard work and ded­i­ca­tion from the pupils, plus top qual­ity teach­ing, to put on such an amaz­ing show.” The show was at the Stag The­atre, Sevenoaks.

Work has al­ready be­gun on the next show. Phone 01233 650045 or go to­biza­
