On Sunday, Wildcats Theatre School students from Stamford, Oakham, Uppingham and Peterborough danced and sang for 2 hours as part of Stamford Christmas Festival 2010.  Children aged between 4 and 17 years took part in group performances in Red Lion Square as well as taking on the challenge of singing solo in front of the large audiences.
 
The Theatre School, which runs classes and holiday programmes across the local area used the opportunity to give children the chance to perform in front of others - Solo performances included Georgia Burdock, age 10 from Baston who sang 'Thank you for the Music', Annabel Otterburn, age 9 from Uffington who sang 'Tomorrow' and Jessica Auciello, age 9 from Ryhall who sang 'Popular' from the show Wicked. 
 
The West End Wildcats also performed a piece from their upcoming London show on 30th January 2011.  The West End Wildcats are a group of children aged 4-17 from the theatre school who have taken on the challenge of performing on a West End Stage.  They were chosen by Director Darren Lord to form part of his 'Showstoppers' show early next year.  The West End Wildcats also gave other children the chance to learn the routine and have a go at the dances.  The West End Wildcats were also collecting money for the upcoming show and raised over £100 throughout the course of the performance.
 
Caz Dolby, of Wildcats UK said 'It was lovely to see so many Wildcats come to the festival and support Stamford's entertainment programme.  The children did brilliantly, and carried on even through the rain.  They had lots of support from a very large crowd of onlookers and we are really proud of every single person who came along and took part in the day.  Also a big thank you to everyone who supported us and gave the children so much encouragement to perform.'
 
Kelly-Ann Soper, Wildcats Teacher said 'The children really remembered all the things we have taught them about performing outdoors and live to large audiences.  They remembered their words and proved how fantastic they all are'.
