Making a song and dance in Sleat

There was song and dance aplenty in Sleat when pupils from Lorayne McLucas Performing Arts took to the stage in front of a sell-out audience.

Fifty pupils aged from five to 15 were involved in the recent premiere at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, presenting dances, scenes and songs from musical theatre shows.

The display follows the success of LMPA musical theatre classes, which started as a six-week block in late 2013. Due to their popularity more classes started in Broadford and Dornie in February, with pupils traveling from as far as Carbost and Glenelg to attend.

Lorayne McLucas said:  “I have had a fantastic time working with all the young performers and I am very proud of all they have achieved in the past few months. They are all so eager and love to perform.  There is certainly a lot of emerging stars in our midst.

“I am looking forward to all the exciting things that are coming up, including our summer schools inspired by favourite film musicals such as ‘Grease’,  ‘Hairspray’ and ‘Frozen’ and running from Monday 7th-Friday 11th July in Broadford and Kyleakin.  There has been amazing support from the pupils, their families and the community.”
