It's Showtime

A colourful spectacle combining the West End, Norwich Theatre Royal and a Hethersett dance school will hit the stage later this month. 

A host of well known musicals, including songs from Starlight Express, the Jersey Boys, We Will Rock You and High School Musical, will be featured in the latest production by the Yvonne School of Dance. 

“West End to Broadway” takes to the stage on Sunday June 20th at 2.30 and 7 p.m. It will be the latest in the biennial shows produced by the Hethersett based dance school which has been in existence since 1984. 

The cast will be aged from three to adult and the family friendly show is known for its high octane routines and colourful costumes. The Yvonne School of Dancing trains all ages in all forms of dance from tap and ballet to modern. 

Principal Yvonne Cutting said: “Our aim is to provide children and adults with a recreational hobby and grounding in theatre work. Apart from teaching our students dance skills, we endeavour to develop their confidence, stamina and poise.”

The show is hard work for Yvonne and her team who choreograph and perfect the routines, design and help create the costumes, and oversee the show right through rehearsals until the cast takes to the stage at the theatre. 

It is a formula that works, as Norwich Theatre Royal spokesman John Bultitude explains. “The shows always prove incredibly popular and the Yvonne School of Dance enjoys a well-earned reputation for producing a great show with all the students working very hard to contribute to this.” 

The dance school’s 2008 production “Bright Lights of Broadway” was described in the Evening News as “a show full of zip, zest and exuberance.” As well as providing first class entertainment the show also raises money for local charities which in the past have included Hethersett Surgery, Quidenham Hospice, Clare Special School, Norwich, and the East Anglia Air Ambulance. 

Tickets for the show are priced from £5 to £15 and available from the Theatre Royal box office on 01603 630000
