The team of Stagecoach pupils from Buckingham joined other youngsters from Stagecoach groups across the UK on the stage.

There they performed a medley of songs from jukebox musicals which included a variety of hits from ‘On Your Feet’ based on the songs of Gloria Estefan.

Stagecoach Performing Arts Buckingham’s principal Tilly James said: “For the children to be able to perform at the Adelphi Theatre marked our West End debut as a theatre school and was a really special moment!

“Performances like this are a huge confidence booster and there was a great sense of camaraderie among the pupils.

“The pupils put all their efforts into an astounding performance, which had everyone literally ‘On Their Feet’ cheering!”
