Video: Dancing troupe invades newsroom

There were bizarre scenes as a troupe of dancing youngsters invaded the newsroom this week.

The Portadown office used by reporters from the News Letter, Portadown Times and Lurgan Mail was the scene of a musical “flash-mob” on Monday, when a group of performers from Little Starz turned up.

Taking to the floor – and the tops of desks – they performed a rendition of the ABBA song Mamma Mia, ahead of their upcoming shows in Armagh Market Place Theatre this weekend.

Welcome To The West End, a musical showpiece featuring local young actors runs at 7pm on Friday, 2pm and 7pm on Saturday, and 2pm on Sunday.

The production company Little Starz was started up by Louise Fahey, who said: “We were lucky to hand pick the finest of young and teenage actors in Armagh.

“It’s great to mix all the kids together for a show and the cast are having a ball and have made so many new friends from this already. They have been training since February for this show”.
