Performers on the train to London Palladium

LONDON Palladium-bound at the weekend will be children from St Albans who attend performing arts school Theatretrain.

The youngsters will be appearing on the Palladium stage on Sunday in the show Rhythm & Blues which celebrates black music and features the music of the Supremes, the Four Tops, the Jackson Five, Marvin Gaye and Lionel Richie in the first act and the story of the Blues Brothers in the second.

Natalie Bosson, who runs the school, said: “All the children are very excited about going to perform at the West End. They have worked very hard over the last two terms to prepare for the performance.

“We have four children fronting as soloists singing Really Saying Something, How Sweet It Is, Try A Little Tenderness and The Old Landmark. Two of our pupils will be starring as the Blues Brothers and we have other children with various parts.”
