TWENTY schoolchildren have put their summer holidays to great use by putting on a stage show to remember.

The students at the Hartlepool branch of the Stagecoach group have been praised by their teachers for their fantastic attitude in putting on a new show.

The plaudits came from Stagecoach spokesman and principal Paula Day. Paula said: “The children have learned songs, dance moves and drama lines”.

Then, they staged a show which was free to watch and was held in Elwick.

Paula described the whole process as “very hard work but very enjoyable”.

She said the show and all the preparation for it was a chance for the children to be productive in the school holidays and a chance to make new friends.

Children from across the town took part in the show.

Stagecoach Hartlepool provides quality part-time training in the performing arts for children aged from four to 18 years old, and has been doing it in singing, dancing and acting for more than 10 years.

Part of its work is to offer Early Stages sessions for four to six-year-olds, which is intended to be a gentle introduction to the main schools.

Once children aged from six to 18 join the main school, they learn to sing, dance and act at weekends or alternatively, on evenings during term time.

For children who are already doing drama in school, Stagecoach aims to complement the skills that have been learned.

Its aim is to nurture and develop young potential through singing, acting and dance classes in Hartlepool.

Organisers say their aim is to stretch young imaginations and build confidence.

The group is open every weekend during term time and workshops during the school holidays.

It meets at High Tunstall College of Science in Elwick Road in Hartlepool
