Carmarthen Performing Arts students learn skills for life on New Theatre stage in Cardiff

STUDENTS between the ages of six and twelve from Stagecoach Performing Arts in Carmarthen gave a spectacular performance in homage to the musical, Cats, at the New Cardiff Theatre on Sunday. 

The show saw students perform a medley of hits from Cats, including ‘Jellicle Songs for Jellicle Cats’, ‘The Old Gumbie Cat’, ‘The Rum Tum Tugger’, ‘ Skimbleshanks, ‘The Railway Cat’, ‘Macavity’ and ‘Jellicle Ball’. 

Events like these give students a chance to shine on stage as well as the opportunity to hone their skills and confidence.

Each student brought their unique flair to the performance, making it a memorable event for all of us. Knowing the work that went into the performance, I am super proud of them and the strides they have all made in their confidence to bring their talent to the big stage.”
