The SASA School of Performing Arts is holding its first Easter Showcase at the Wyllyotts Theatre on Saturday, April 20 – for one night only.

SASA organisers have one scholarship worth £150 available for a young person aged five to 18.

The scholarship covers a week of workshops at Fleetville School in St Albans from Monday, April 15 through to the final showcase in Potters Bar on April 20.

The showcase will feature a diverse range of performance styles from street and contemporary dance to musical theatre, singing and drama.

Students will be given the opportunity to help shape and devise their own pieces, work with experienced teachers from the industry, and build confidence as they work together in the week leading up to the show.

Participants will be able to sample all performance styles and this year, SASA’s award-winning street crew will be inspiring everyone with their competition work.

The dance and musical theatre arm of SASA was formally run by Zoe Jackson MBE as part of her company, Living the Dream.

Zoe continues to run Living the Dream as a professional dance company and charity, but is also SASA’s patron.

Phoebe Shergold-Willis, founder and director of SASA, said: “We are extremely excited to pick up the reins and continue and develop Zoe’s amazing work in the field of performing arts for young people.”

Zoe established a regular Easter Showcase and SASA is continuing that tradition with this inaugural performance at the Wyllyotts Theatre on Saturday, April 20 at 6.30pm.

Tickets for the show cost £15, and £10 children.

They are available via www.tickets.wyllyottstheatre.co.uk
