Budding performers from Stagecoach Performing Arts in Northampton enjoyed the trip of a lifetime to Disneyland Paris, where they spent three days learning about what it takes to become a Disney performer.

They took part in a performance with the Disney cast of Beauty and the Beast, and had the opportunity to workshop with them, partaking in mock auditions, giving them valuable industry experience. They also enjoyed going into Disney Recording Studios to record vocals for their performance.

Karl Festa, Principal of Stagecoach Northampton, said: “The students had the best time absorbing all the great advice and guidance they received from the Disney team, providing them skills they can use throughout their life, not just in performing arts. They will certainly treasure these special memories.”
