A theatre school which inspires children to break into the world of show business is celebrating its 30th anniversary.

The Sue Nieto Theatre School, in Mill Hill East Church, Parkside, taught its first aspiring actors and dancers in July 1984.

Exactly 30 years later, the school is now a thriving hub with 500 students and 70 dance, drama and singing classes.

To celebrate, proprietor Ms Nieto is taking 50 of the school’s pupils to Disneyland Paris next week to perform on one of the main stages for the visitors.
