Students at a Haverhill performing arts school sang, danced and acted their way through a sell-out show at the weekend.

The show by the Mayes School of Performing Arts took place at Haverhill Arts Centre on Saturday, with performances at 2.30 and 6pm.

The school was established in February 2019 by husband and wife, Lee and Megan Mayes, both experienced performers themselves, with the Centre Stage Company featuring heavily on their CVs.

Following the successful sell out of their first show in March 2020 at the Haverhill Arts Centre, they decided to do another one and once again it was completely sold out.

Called A-Mayes-ing, it was, said Lee, a showcase of singing, dancing and acting from all students and featured lots of songs from musicals, solos, duets, monologues, group numbers and whole call cast numbers.

Lee and Megan, who are directors of the group, which has 60 students ranging in age from seven to 18, said: “We are so proud of all of our students for performing amazingly.

“All of them performed with such enthusiasm and confidence.

“Over a third of our students had never performed on stage so we are thrilled to be able to offer them this opportunity.”

The school offers weekly two hour sessions on Monday evenings at Castle Manor Academy, in Eastern Avenue and is, added Lee, looking forward to its theatre trip to see Wicked the Musical in London next month.
