Shining Stars – Akeley’s Got Talent

Shining Stars - Akeley’s Got Talent Show 2018

On Friday evening, the Drama Studio at Akeley Wood House was buzzing with excitement, ready to treat the audience to an array of talent on the stage. Parents, friends and family, joined staff and performers for a night of dance, comedy, circus skills and battle of the bands!

A rise of excitement built as the spectators started to take their seats for what was set to be a fun packed evening. A fabulous range of skill in one space. This was an opportunity for the students to shine, demonstrating their talents and ability in their chosen performance, for all to celebrate. Students had been rehearsing for the show for some weeks beforehand. Gruelling auditions followed, and performers were shortlisted to 18 acts.

Staff and students from within the Performing Arts department worked hard to make the evening a success. From the back stage crew, sound and lighting desk, through to the judging and the catering, and of course the performers themselves. Thank you to all involved. As always a big thank you must also go to the parents for their continued support of the Performing Arts at Akeley Wood School
