PERFORMERS from Stagecoach Trowbridge, a performing arts school for young people run on Saturdays from The Clarendon Academy, have hit the stage at Disneyland Paris - and some of the youngsters are hoping they may be invited back to work there.

19 students from the school aged between 9-20 years, travelled to Disneyland Paris and performed over three days. They danced in the pre-parade through the park, finishing at Main Street in front of thousands of international visitors. They also sung in front of the Cinderella castle with characters from The Lion King. They also got to perform their own 15-minute dance and song routine on one of the Main Disney stages in front of up to a thousand people.

The schools, which offer classes in dance, drama and singing to students aged 2-19 years, passed two rigorous auditions with Disney last autumn to be selected to perform in the main Disney parks in July.

This was the fourth time that Stagecoach Trowbridge, which also has a branch in Frome, have successfully auditioned for Disneyland Paris.

Principal Freddie Underwood says: ‘Performing at Disneyland Paris was truly such an honour and an incredible achievement for our students. The memories from the trip will stay with them forever.

"Disney talent scouted some of our older students and invited them to participate in a training programme which could result in them becoming Disney professionals. This exciting opportunity takes place in January 2020 and we are very excited for the students involved."

Stagecoach Trowbridge celebrated its 10th year in 2019 with 200 young people attending the school every Saturday. For more information, contact Freddie on 01249 714333 or
