ST MARY’S College BTEC performing arts students are showcasing their many talents in the iconic musicals Chicago and Annie tonight and tomorrow.

The students started their rehearsals in January and have worked intensively to achieve the highest possible performance standard. Previous St Mary’s Performing Arts students have continued their studies at prestigious drama schools such as RADA and East 15, with this new crop of talent aiming to do the same.

Student Maddison Stevens, who plays Velma Kelly in Chicago, said, “It has been exhausting but also exciting.”
