Musical magic is a sell-out
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 to www.showbizacademy.biz
