North Academy of Performing Arts principal praises students after Wath show

PROUD performing arts school principal Katy North praised her students after a successful showcase.

The Rawmarsh-based North Academy of Performing Arts presented North'n Magic at Montgomery Hall in Wath.

“We had different kinds of music, from Queen’s A Kind of Magic to lyrical and contemporary pieces — a bit of everything,” said Katy.

“There was a section from The Greatest Showman and one from Mary Poppins.

“We even had a bit of comedy with an ‘old ladies’ sketch.

“We have students from age to right up to their early 50s.

“All the students were presented on stage with certificates for their exams, which they passed with flying colours.

“I’m really proud of everyone, from my students and the teachers I have who have all worked so hard.”

The school’s next stage outing will be a return of the Northern Belles show, which brings burlesque to Montgomery Hall in the summer, followed by a cabaret night in September.

They will also be in action at Wath Festival and Wath Town Gala 
In the mean time, the female-dominated academy is on the lookout for more “lads” to join the team, especially aged between 11 and 16.

Rehearsals take place on Thursday. Call 07795 181015 for more information.
