Youngsters from Razzamataz Theatre Schools performed their summer show.

It was an all-singing all- dancing affair at Sheffield’s Octagon Centre when students from a performing arts school staged their annual show.

Pupils from the Razzamataz theatre school performed street dance, pop singing, television acting and musical theatre in the show called One Night Only.

Pupils aged between four and 16 took part in the show and performed numbers from popular musicals including Matilda.

Daisy Peacock, aged 10, who played the part of Matilda, said: “The show was a fantastic experience and I can’t wait for next year’s already!

“Being able to sing a solo on stage to hundreds of people was so exciting and something I’ll never forget.”

Razzamataz is a theatre school franchise which gained national recognition after it was featured on Dragons’ Den in 2007 and won an investment from Duncan Bannatyne.

Since the Sheffield branch opened the school, based at Sheffield College in Norton, has gone from strength to strength.

“One of our aims is to provide as many opportunities as possible for students to put their skills into practice,” said Helen Green, principal of Razzamataz Sheffield.

“One Night Only showcased the huge amount of talent we have in the school and was a very proud moment for me.”

She added: “Every student shone on that stage and I’m glad that every child had an unforgettable experience.”

The school has an awards ceremony in July and students are rehearsing for their West End debut in September.
