Young performers in Abingdon recently enjoyed a trip to Disneyland Paris, learning the ropes of Disney performance over three days.

The Stagecoach Performing Arts students had the opportunity to take part in a performance with the Disney cast of Beauty and the Beast, and participated in mock auditions.

They also went to the Disney recording studios to record vocals for their performance. 

Tara Melia Hunt, principal of Stagecoach Abingdon, said: "It was an absolute joy to not only see my students blossom and improve massively under the expert coaching of the Disney professionals, but I had the pleasure of spending quality time with this amazing group of students.

"Each student went on their own personal journey and gained their own unique set of skills to take away from the event.

"Every single one of them was buzzing after each workshop and they will certainly treasure these wonderful memories."
