TWO hundred students with more than 1,000 costumes from Whiteleys’ Academy of Performing Arts will be taking to the Victoria Theatre stage, Halifax, at 1pm and 7pm on Saturday for their annual “Starburst Showcase”.

They will be performing numbers from musicals such as “Matilda”, “Half a Sixpence”, “Fame”, “Footloose” and “Glee”.

The event will also support the Overgate and Forget-Me-Not hospices.

Students have extended their learning through IDTA, LAMDA and LCM examinations, with a 100 per cent pass rate, taking part in Festival of Dance XV, Christmas shows and Roy Castle’s Tapathon.
