Razzamataz Theatre Schools Sheffield, which launched in September 2012, recently held their annual showcase at the The Octagon Centre where 240 of their students performed. ‘Raise Your Voice’ covered all aspects of the Razzamataz curriculum including Street Dance, Pop Singing, TV acting and Musical Theatre and featured children between the ages of 4-18 years old.
Razzamataz gained national recognition after an appearance on Dragons’ Den in 2007 and won an investment from Duncan Bannatyne. Since the Sheffield branch opened the school has gone from strength to strength and students have achieved an incredible amount in that time.
The show featured ensemble performances from all students but back in January students aged 9-16 were given the chance to secure solo spots. Isobel Dunigan, aged 9, was lucky enough to win the part of Annie, “At first I was a little nervous singing on on my own but we practiced lots in our classes and in the end I loved being able to sing Tomorrow in front of such a huge audience! I can’t wait for next year already!”
‘Raise Your Voice’ was not only enjoyable for the students participating but comments have flooded in from proud parents. Katie Hilton, Mum to Tilly and Phoebe, said “A brilliant show, fantastically organised. You have certainly given my two girls the chance to be involved in something out of this world and I watch them grow in confidence and ability ever year.”
Razzamataz strive to provide high quality tuition and create performance opportunities for their students. “One of our aims is to provide as many opportunities as possible for students to put their skills into practice. Raise Your Voice showcased the huge amount of talent we have in the school and it was a very proud day for us,” said Helen Green, Principal of Razzamataz Sheffield. “Every student shone on that stage and seeing them having so much fun is incredibly rewarding.”
