Worthing shoppers were treated to an impromptu performance by drama students from Ariel Drama Acadamy last Saturday.
Montague Place came alive with dancing, singing and acting as an Ariel flash mob left surprised shoppers, smiling and tapping their feet.
The children, aged between 5 and 19 had choreographed the piece along with their tutors to raise money for the Angus Rowland ForgetMeNot Fund.
Worthing was selected for the fun, fundraising stunt as it is the location of Ariel’s new drama academy, which will open its doors on February 22 at Worthing College.
Ariel’s Principal Nicci Hopson said, “It was fantastic to see the students perform with such energy and enthusiasm. People’s faces lit up and they were very generous. I am so proud of the students and we are delighted to be opening our fifth Academy in Worthing”.
The next Ariel Company Theatre production will be Miss Saigon. The epic love story tells the tale of orphaned bar girl Kim who falls in love with American GI Chris, as Saigon falls around them. Ariel is excited to bring back the show, this time to Horsham’s Capitol Theatre from March 11 to 15.
