Superstars Stage Academy Summer Spectacular 2016 was an explosion of fun and fabulous performances, with the youngsters giving their all on the Dun Mhuire Stage and received huge applause!

The kids brought the fairytale characters of Shrek alive on stage with songs like 'This is our Story' and 'Story of My Life' and 'Freak Flag' and Princess Fiona wowed the the audience with 'I Know it's Today.

Sharon Clancy and Paul Walsh graced the stage as Mama and Papa Shrek and then with a quick change and standing in last minute Paul Walsh became Shrek. Faye Jordon as Donkey was a real show stopper.

After the interval it was time for 'Annie' and stunning little Yvette Walsh was glorious in the title role. All the Superstars transformed into little cheeky orphans while the seniors took up roles as the maids to Andrew Smith's Daddy Warbucks.

Dillon Walsh was a super Rooster with Ella O' Brien as his Lilly. Caoimhe Boyle as Grace and Hayley Crosby as Miss Hannigan worked brilliantly as contrasting characters and of course yet again both lit up the stage. Laura McGuire as Molly was just too cute for words.

New Ross Superstars performed their Summer Spectacular at St. Michaels Theatre on Saturday, June 4. They were joined by the Wexford School of Ballet New Ross Branch and they performed their socks off.

Enrolment now open for September 2016. Call Sharon on 085 8238665 or Suzanne on 0862224945.
