YOUNG performers from a Whitby performing arts school will showcase their talents in music dance and drama at a show in the town.

Twenty nine students from Kings Performing Arts based at Caedmon School will perform scenes from the Lion King and Grease on Thursday 28 March.

Principal of the school, Hannah Barnett-Savage from Fylingthorpe said: “The children are a pleasure to teach and enjoy the fun and professional training in musical theatre.

“Kings aims to build not only their technique in the three disciplines but also helps to build confidence and encourage creativity.

”The children have been working very hard towards their first show and it promises to be an explosion of talent and fun.”

The Whitby school was established by university student Hannah who is also a member of the Apollo Players, in September 2011.

She has danced since the age of two and has trained in ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary and musical theatre.

Kings Performing Arts meets on Thursday evenings from 4pm to 8pm for eight to 18 year olds while there is also an introductory class from 5pm to 6.30pm for four to seven year olds.

The show on 28 March starts at 6pm at Caedmon School.

Entry is free.
