We want you back, says audience!
THEATRE students from Kettering impressed audiences with songs such as ‘Want You Back’ and musical show-stoppers from Disney to Madonna at the Cresset Theatre in Peterborough earlier this month.
Twenty-two students from Stagecoach Theatre Arts School in Kettering joined some 300 pupils from schools across Essex and Yorkshire to perform ‘Get UP and Dance!’ and sparking calls for ‘Encore!’
The colourful set list included everything from 1920s classics such as ‘Let’s Twist Again’ to modern favourites including Ed Sheeran’s ‘I See Fire’.
After warming up for the event for weeks, the students wowed the 350-strong audience with their renditions of ‘Want You Back’ by the Backstreet Boys and ‘Blame it on the Boogie’ by the Jackson 5.
Stagecoach Theatre Arts Kettering principal, Penny Calardo, said: “The show was called Get UP and Dance, and that’s exactly what the students did! They had worked incredibly hard on the performance and it certainly paid off. It was fantastic seeing them on stage as co-stars, singing and dancing so confidently and the audience really enjoyed it.”
Stagecoach Theatre Arts Kettering is part of a network of more than 600 part-time Theatre Arts Schools worldwide. Early Stages classes are available for children aged 4-6 and Main Stages classes take place for 6 to 18-year-olds.
