Redroofs Theatre School celebrates 30th anniversary with show

Stage school pupils displayed their skills last week.

Redroofs Theatre School celebrated the 30th anniversary of it's full time day school in Maidenhead by putting on a show called School for Stars.

The spectacular saw pupils perform tap routines, group dances and songs from Les Miserables and Ghost the Musical.

It ran from Thursday to Saturday at the school's own theatre The Novello in Sunninghill.

Co-head Carolyn Mayling said: "It was a fantastic show. Everybody went out buzzing. We had a standing ovation on the last night. There was just so much talent on display."

Redroofs launched its full time school at 26 Bath Road in 1981. Its first year of full time pupils included actress Lucy Benjamin and Maidenhead actor Matthew Cottle, who is starring at the Theatre Royal, Windsor this week.

Past pupils include superstar Kate Winslet, Tracey Beaker actress Dani Harmer, West End stars Gina and Mazz Murray, Downton Abbey star Joanne Froggatt and actress Ali Bastien.

Redroofs pupil Kerry Ingram has been nominated for an Olivier award for her role in Matilda.

See them performing below.
