Showcase

Showcase is our annual ‘in-house’ competition where students put their acts together themselves. A celebration of their creativity and own work; students can act, sing or dance and even costume their performance themselves! Independent judges are then invited to select winners in our age groups. Always followed by our big PAAW disco!

 

Showcase 201EC7130AB-93C5-459F-90C4-F040B3D738789

For the first time we moved venues this year! Showcase was held at Ysgol Y Deri and was a huge success at our new venue. The students had more room for their performance and the audience loved being in a proper theatre. Another highly entertaining evening, we’re very proud of the work all of our stendents produced. Thank you to our judges Jane Clarke (Dance teacher and choreographer), Ashleigh Patrick (former PAAW student) and Nia Spilsbury (former PAAW student).

Also, for the first time, we added a third place award as the school as grown so much.
