West End performer visits Colyton

WEST End performer Keisha Atwell held a workshop with children at Colyton Grammar School.

The Hairspray actress sang and dance with the children and talked about her career at the Back to Broadway event.

Mike Bearcroft, the event’s managing director, said: “It’s been fantastic – one of our best schools. We are opening a year round one due to popular demand. Keisha has done a great job and is a very talented lady.”

The children performed in front of 100 people in aid of the charity Children’s Hospice South West. They had five days to learn a musical.
