The troupe performed a "Viva Elvis" routine, combining a medley of music that pays tribute to music legend Elvis Presley.

Principal of Stagecoach Bury, Jill Schoonjans, said: “It's just a great experience for the kids to perform on a big professional stage.

“We wanted to do an Elvis Presley-themed piece because, well, that was my inspiration really, I run the school but I also promote an Elvis theatre show so it's kind of a bit of a labour of love for me.”

The troupe included children aged 10 to 16 who are said to have pulled off a professional and energetic performance and received a standing ovation from the audience.

The choreography and vocals were crafted by Laura Wenton and Caitlin Wineyard, teachers at the Stagecoach school.

Jill added: “The theatre was completely full, there were ten different schools participating and you all get a little section each.

“Ours went down as an absolute hit. It went down a storm and we got a full standing ovation at the end”

“We were the only school to get a standing ovation, so it was pretty special and for the kids that was like kind of a moment to remember.”
