A group of young musical theatre students stepped out on stage with renewed confidence recently - after getting the thumbs up from one of the stars of the genre.
Shortly before their end of term show they received a signed photo from Hairspray star Michael Ball, with the message: “To the kids at Backstage. ‘Knock ‘em dead!’ with love, Michael Ball.”
A spokesperson for the musical theatre school said: “The kids were absolutely thrilled when we showed them the signed picture shortly before the show and there was a real buzz in the theatre during the performance.”
