An all singing, all dancing show celebrating 50 years of musical theatre will come bursting onto the stage in Skegness this Sunday.
The Embassy School of Performing Arts has teamed up with some talented star guests for its latest production - The Greatest Musicals of Our Time.
Featuring special appearances from West End actor and comedian Stefan Michaels and the ‘ultimate Abba tribute’ Abba eyes, the show will take audiences through a dazzling repertoire of classic show tunes from such renowned productions as Chicago, West Side Story, Annie and many more.
School principal Liza Walsh says the team of young performers and their adult co-stars have been hard at work making sure their show goes off with a bang.
“Now’s their chance to bring all their efforts come together and really shine,” she said.
Liza started up at the school in January to offer disadvantaged children from the Skegness area a chance to build their confidence through performance.
“With so much competition in the area for performance coaching, ESPA’s ethos is about getting the best out of children and young adults in their chosen discipline, building performance skills and confidence that will help them develop as an individual and in a career with the performance arts industry,” she said.
“The objective of the show is to promote the school and raise money to offer disadvantaged children in the area funded workshops in drama, dance and music that will help build confidence and promote social skills.”
Sunday’s show at the Embassy Theatre, Skegness, will also feature choirs from Seathorne and Richmond primary schools and a very special guest from Keith’s Rescue Dogs.
Daisy the rescue dog will be taking to the stage as Annie’s pet Sandy while the stars perform their singing, dancing rendition from the hit musical.
Other favourite musicals featured throughout the performance include Jesus Christ Super Star, Les Miserables, Miss Saigon, Grease and We Will Rock You.
“This is a show not to be missed with an explosive finale that is sure to get you up on your feet, dancing in the aisles,” said a spokesperson.
The show starts at 7.30pm this Sunday, July 21. Tickets cost £11 for adults, £9 for children.
