Today we have welcomed fifty young people aged between 7-16 years old for a special day of half-term workshops based around the sunniest and funniest show in town – Hairspray.
The day has featured highlights such as a backstage tour taking a look at the set and costumes featured in the show, learning the hit songs from the production and even a dance class with Hairspray cast member and Dance Captain, Laura Thorogood.
Laura put the group through their paces learning the moves to the high-energy finale, ‘You Can’t Stop the Beat’ with a flurry of jazz-hands and hip-shaking in one of our dance studios usually occupied by dancers from Birmingham Royal Ballet.
As the kids dance, sing and explore their way round our theatre there’s no denying that they are sure to be ‘the nicest kids in town’ as they leave to enjoy the rest of the half term break.
Take a look at the picture gallery below for some shots from Laura’s masterclass and keep your eyes on the website for more info on upcoming holiday workshops including our Summer Workshop 2013 here.
