Theatre pupils from Leeds wowed the crowds in Blackpool with a mix of musical numbers from The Blues Brothers Musical.

Students from Stagecoach Theatre Arts School in Kippax, Selby and Wetherby joined pupils from schools across the country to perform at The Grand Theatre in Blackpool in a showcase of musicals from the past ten years.

Stagecoach Theatre Arts Leeds principal Lisa Druett said: “The students worked incredibly hard on the performance and their confidence was clear to see throughout rehearsals and on the night.

“Seeing them on stage was inspiring for both me and their families.”
