“Our young performers will be accompanied by Musical Director Gareth Lloyd and Amanda Tyas, our choreographer/junior co ordinator, and everybody is very excited to be able to present some of the best moments from the production for the Birmingham audience,” said Easy Street’s Amanda Tagg.

“More importantly, though, the Festival is a great day of workshops and information so everybody comes back full of ideas and enthusiasm.

“When they perform they Frozen highlights, they’ll also get some great feedback from the Festival’s judging panel so it’s a valuable day of learning, performance and fun.”
