Bishop's Stortford's Theatretrain stars entertain at Royal Albert Hall
Budding stars from Bishop's Stortford were among a group of performing arts pupils who took part in a production at London's Royal Albert Hall.
The 64 youngsters aged between six and 18 are members of Theatretain in the town, Hertford and Ware. They joined students from 29 other centres across the UK to form a 1,150-strong company for MOVE!
Alongside the live, 15-piece orchestra they sang, danced and acted their way through over 30 pieces of music ranging in style from David Bowie's Life On Mars to Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody via Zorba the Greek and The Blue Danube for an audience of more than 4,000.
Theatretrain was established in 1992 and has schools across the UK. It concentrates on two processes - learning skills in the performing arts and performing those skills to an audience. It meets at St Mary's Catholic School, Windhill from 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm on Saturdays during term time, where children have hour-long classes in dancing, acting and singing each week. There are also shorter, introductory classes for four and five-year-olds and free sessions for three-year-olds. For more details email firstname.lastname@example.org
