Young performers heading for The Albert Hall

Monday, 9 January, 2017

A large group of young performers from Tendring are to showcase their talents at one of the most famous venues in the country.

The Princes Youth Theatre has been invited to take part in a show at the Royal Albert Hall in London in April.

Around 70 youngsters aged from seven up to 18 will perform a specially choreographed number from Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber’s school of rock.

The show, which is being produced by Mardi Gras Productions, is called ‘Stars in the Round’.

It will feature around 20 carefully selected dance schools from right around the UK.

Dance teacher and choreographer Joeley Bishop from the Princes Youth Theatre said that she is excited about the challenge of creating a piece to be performed at the Royal Albert Hall.

“It is an incredible opportunity for these young performers from across the District to get the chance to perform at this world famous venue in front of a large audience,” she said.

“We will be rehearsing hard over the next few months to ensure that we do ourselves justice and put on a  performance to be proud of.”

The Princes Youth Theatre runs weekly workshops and comes together at least twice a year to stage full-scale productions at the Tendring District Council (TDC) run theatre.

It has been staging shows for well over ten years.

Tanya Ferguson, TDC’s Cabinet Member for Tourism and Culture, said it is great to see local young people getting the chance to make the very most of their talents.

“I am sure that they will have a fantastic time at the Royal Albert Hall and a wider audience will see the very high standard that is being achieved in Tendring.”
