As a child did you ever imagine performing on stage in front of an audience of over 150 people? Or does even the thought of it fill you with nerves?
Well, if the amazing young actors and designers of Academy Extra were nervous on the evening of Thursday 17th May, they certainly didn't show it! It was on this incredible evening when Academy Extra held our annual showcase and this year it was bigger and better than ever.
Every single child who attended covered themselves in glory as they confidently and skillfully performed 7, YES 7!, shows in front of a huge audience. The showcase was full of fun, laughter, energy and enthusiasm and everyone had such a great time.
A huge thank you must go to Matthew Hodgkiss in Year 10 for his impressive role as Technical Director and Mr Heyes, Mrs Evans and Miss Caton for their commitment and energy in ensuring Academy Extra continues to be a wonderful experience for the young people of Blackpool.
Roll on next year!
