Footlights in limelight at Nailsea School

Fantastic show on Sunday night at Nailsea School by the Footlights Dance Academy.
First the children aged from three to 16 took us through the 20th century Dance Through The Decades from the Charleston to rock 'n' roll and then put on their pantomime version of Disney's Cinderella.
It was great with some wonderful all-singing and all-dancing stars.
The evil stepmother, stepsisters Anastasia and Drisella, the fairy godmother, Gus, Jaq and Prince Charming all performed 'beautifully' in this stage adaption of the 1950 Disney film.
And I really didn't notice that the Prince was at least two foot taller than Cinders!
But yet again it was the scene-stealing little ones dressed as mice that stole the show.
Loved it, well done everyone.
Footlights Performance Academy is a professional performing arts group for young people which holds classes at Backwell WI hall; The Tithe Barn, Nailsea; Portishead Youth Cnetre and the Railway Inn, Yatton.
