SONGS from the shows are being performed by a talented cast from a Hartlepool dance school.
The students of the Edith Harrison Performing Arts school are staging a production called Up! Up! Up!
It arrives at the Town Hall Theatre in Raby Road, Hartlepool, tonight and continues until Friday with a host of big musical numbers to impress the audience.
Dance school owner Edith Harrison said: “We have been rehearsing for this since Christmas and our vocal coach and musical director have done a wonderful job with the children.
“This is all about Hollywood and musicals, and live theatre. It is a variety show and it has all sorts of material in it.
“We have a cast aged from about five to 19 and 20 taking part and some of them have been with us for a long time.”
The production starts at 7pm each night from tonight until Friday. It features numbers from Broadway and West End musicals including Wicked, Annie, and Billie Elliot. There are also numbers from High School Musical and Fame.
Edith added: “We do tap, ballet, modern stage, hiphop, jazz and street dance.”
Tickets cost £8 for adults and £7 with concessions. They are available from the Tourist Information Centre, in Church Square, or by calling the theatre box office on (01429) 890000.
