A 12-year-old boy has been announced as the winner of Razz’s Got Talent , a talent show from the Dragons’ Den -backed theatre school business.
Finn Hibbert, of Saltney, is a student at St David’s High School.
Supporting local talent and giving back to the community to help young people with their performing arts training is high on the agenda for Razzamataz Chester and it was with great delight that Finn was awarded a year-long scholarship to attend the theatre school completely free of charge.
Finn was praised for his performance of Alexandra Burke’s Hallelujah . Judges were particularly impressed by his confidence and vocal range.
Claire Larkin, principal of Razzamataz Chester, said: “It wasn’t just about the overall performance, we were looking for originality in performing arts and for that real star quality.
“We really hope this inspires Finn to keep working hard and enjoying his performing arts training.”
First runner up Elizabeth Cosme was awarded one term at Razzamataz Chester for half price fees as she impressed judges with her vocal ability.
Unlike many popular TV talent shows, Razz’s Got Talent is about nurturing young performers and celebrating the joy and experience of public performances.
Razzamataz classes consist of dance, drama and singing and the curriculum covers the whole of the performing arts, from classic West End musical theatre to street dance and pop singing.
