A BUDDING performer from Neston was among a group of talented youngsters entertaining shoppers with an impromptu flashdance.

Children from Wrexham-based Bitesize Youth Theatre are currently rehearsing this year’s production of The Wizard of Oz.

The actors and dancers surprised visitors at Wrexham’s Eagles Meadow shopping centre with a flashmob performance of a medley of Wizard of Oz tracks.

Fourteen year old Lauren Arnison travels from Neston to Wrexham to attend the theatre and said the routine was ‘great fun’.

“It might be a bit of a distance but it’s so worth it,” she said.

“I want to work on TV and in theatres and I’m learning so much at Bitesize.

“The flashdance was such a laugh - everyone was really surprised and after realising what was going on they joined in and applauded our efforts. I’d like to do it every week!”

There are only a handful of tickets left for the Wizard of Oz which will come to the Groundlings Theatre between February 11-16, so call Bitesize Theatre on 01978 358320 for information.
