More than 100 young people got the chance to put on a show at a professional concert hall in Bury St Edmunds.

Members from the Bury and Stowmarket Stagecoach schools performed their ‘Stagecoach Showcase’ at the Apex on Sunday.

In total 137 youngsters took part aged from four to 18.

Principal Caroline Ranson said: “The younger ones did Joseph and the older ones did cabaret from Footloose to Matilda, the Wizard of Oz and Sister Act.”

The performers, who did two shows at the venue that day, were all in make-up and costume.
