TALENTED Solihull thespians took centre stage in the West End and showcased their skills to a packed out audience.

Students from the Pauline Quirke Academy of Performing Arts in Solihull dazzled their family and friends with a performance of The Lazy Ace at Shaftesbury Theatre in London.

The Lazy Ace is a musical comedy set on the Las Vegas Strip in the 1950s; Detective Chip Buddy is in search of a card shark known as The Lazy Ace amongst the hustle and bustle of the casino scene.

PQA Solihull had the freedom to be as imaginative and creative with their part of the show as they like, from the casting, staging and choreography.

The principal of the Solihull academy, Raj Bhambra, said: “The students should be so proud of all their hard work leading up to the show.

“Their professionalism, their confidence on stage and how their lines were delivered to perfection resembles the highest West End Stage performer.

“Above all the students had fun and absolutely loved performing to a sell-out crowd.”
