Showtime was a big hit!
Songs from the shows entertained the audience at a special fundraising concert in Pontypridd, which pulled in plenty of pounds for the Mayor’s Charity Appeal.
Pupils from Tonypandy Community College joined with local theatre group the LMT Academy to host the It’s Showtime! extravaganza at the Muni Arts Centre, raising more than £1,500 for local charities.
Talented pupils wowed the audience with songs from Mamma Mia, and the crowd also cried out for ‘More!’ when members of the LMT Academy performed songs from Oliver and Footloose.
Rhondda Cynon Taf’s Mayor Cllr Sylvia Jones, who was a special guest at the show, said: "I thoroughly enjoyed myself, thanks to the talented performers who, for the fourth year running, put on a great show filled with popular songs.
"I am extremely grateful to them for organising the event and also for donating the proceeds to such good causes."
Funds raised from the evening will be donated to the Mayor’s six chosen charities: Viva Wales; RCT Crossroads; Rhondda Powerhouse Trust (Llwynypia); Mid Glamorgan Operatic Society; GTFM Community Radio (Taff Ely); and Colstars Youth Theatre (Cynon Valley).
Martin Childs, director of learning for the Performing Arts Faculty at Tonypandy Community College, said: "The students never fail to amaze me with their talent and desire to perform at the highest level. Well done to all."
