A musical performance in Bushey featuring a group of talented young people has been described as “outstanding”.

Students of MPAA Performing Arts Academy performed Into The Woods at The Venue Bushey from July 6 to 8.

MPAA offers the only musical theatre degree in Bushey and Watford validated by the University of West London. Their course gives students opportunities in the West End and Broadway, with students spending a week in New York as part of their learning journey.

Their latest performance has been heralded by Mayor of Hertsmere councillor Chris Myers.

He said: “Bravo to all the students of MPAA for their outstanding performance. I can honestly say we witnessed the next generation of West End and Broadway stars, right here in the heart of Hertsmere.”

Ben Damanin, principal at MPAA, said: “I am delighted with the result of the show; it is the product of so many people’s talent and expertise.

“The audience feedback has been incredible and many of our students have received offers from agents to join their books.”

MPAA perform three times a year, with auditions for the next cohort taking place in September.
