EVERY performance sold out as an Alloa performing arts school marked a special occasion at the weekend.

Forefront Stage School returned to Alloa Town Hall with its special show TEN, marking a decade under the guidance of principal Amber Rennie.

There were four shows over the weekend of June 16 and 18 with cabaret style seating and a range of hits from the past 10 years.

Fresh pieces were also on the bill with Amber speaking of "spectacular" shows.

She gave a "huge thanks" to all who have supported Forefront over the years and said: "From a school of 50 plus pupils we have now grown into a family of 150, some who have been with us from the beginning of our amazing journey.

"We have produced nine pantomimes and 10 dance shows playing to full houses and providing great entertainment for all."

The principal told of the many highs of the past decade with Covid-19 the only low and the biggest challenge.

"When there is a will there is a way and with initiative and imagination our classes continued initially via Zoom then to the Wasp Centre for outdoor classes."

Eventually, normality returned and Amber spoke of her pride in watching everyone take to the stage, from toddlers taking the first steps to young people displaying grace and talent.

She added: "Enrolment is now open for august 2023, we will begin rehearsing for our 2024 pantomime Aladdin in August.

"Then, looking forward to our trip to the Big Apple in July 2024."

A group of 25 will travel to New York to perform in the Minskoff Theatre, the home to The Lion King, and will be dancing under the brightest lights of Times Square.

Fundraising efforts are ongoing with around £10,000 already raised.
