Pupils from a performing arts school in Altrincham showcased a ghoulish performance at a local theme park over the weekend.

The students from Stagecoach Performing Arts, based at the Altrincham College of Art, descended upon Gulliver’s World and spooked visitors with a Halloween-inspired flash mob.

With various other schools also involved, there was a total of 380 performers.

Stagecoach Performing Arts Altrincham Principal, Marion Hankin, said: “It really was mesmerising to watch all the students performing together in the Halloween Flash mob. I genuinely think a few people in the audience got a bit of a fright!

“It was great to see all the students in character on the day and see how they interacted with their fellow peers from other schools. They were nothing but professional and we hope everyone enjoyed the performance as much as we did rehearsing it.”

Stagecoach Performing Arts Altrincham is part of a network of more than 600 part-time Performing Arts Schools worldwide. Early Stages classes are available for children aged 4 to 6 and Main Stages classes take place for 6 to 18 year olds.
