Our big NLDA production was on 1st and 2nd October 2016 at the Brindley Theatre in Runcorn.
It was an absolutely fabulous show which displayed the amazing talents of the whole school. Every child was included and the styles were very diverse showing ballet, tap, modern, national, contemporary, singing and drama. The ages ranged from 2-25 and the whole cast were involved in a spectacular Halloween Finale.
We were sad to say goodbye to some of our Senior girls- Ellie Roberts, Bethany Roberts, Lydia Hoy and Jennifer Holland. We wish them all the very best for the future and hope to see them at social events and future shows.
Our next big show is in February 2017 but we have many events that the children will be involved in before this.
