More than 90 students from Top Hat Stage School in North Herts had been rehearsing since the summer for their show – a combination of fairy tale stories titled Rapunzel and The Beanstalk.

With children as young as four performing, stage nerves were nowhere to be seen – confidence oozed from each and every performer.

Principal Warren Bacci said: “I was so thrilled with all the kids. They have worked so hard all term and the show went without a hitch.”

The show topped off a fabulous year for Top Hat Stage School, who performed at The Drury Lane Theatre in London in the summer.

Warren was also named Hertfordshire’s business person of the year at the Hertfordshire Business Awards.

Warren said: “This year has been such a fantastic year for Top Hat. I look forward to what 2015 has to offer.”

Top Hat caters for students aged from four to 17 and there are weekly sessions at the John Henry Newman School in Stevenage. For more info, visit www.tophatstageschool.co.uk.
