An academy owner looked back on a hugely successful show and announced plans for changes in the future.

The Music Factory staged a One Vision at the Town Hall Theatre in Hartlepool. Music Factory founder Julie Turner described it as “a fantastically successful show”.

And now she is looking to even brighter times by announcing changes for her performing arts academy.

She said: “From spring, I will be taking the Music Factory and all of my loyal students on an exciting new journey.”

She said the academy would be closing the doors on its current York Road premises “to follow a different dynamic”.

Its Adult Stage School, and the newly-formed Intermediate Stage School, will continue, “including some of the most talented youngsters from the Juniors”.

They will still meet on a weekly basis to continue acting, choreography and singing work, said Julie.

Watch out for more details in a forthcoming Dance Fever.

In the meantime, Julie said: “Thank you so much to everybody who has supported The Music Factory over the last three years, and we hope that you continue this support for a long time to come.”
