Who are these posers? Why it’s the Mullen School of Theatre and Dance, preparing for their part in a classic musical!

Eight young dancers from the school were given the opportu

nity to perform at Dewsbury Town Hall in the Dewsbury Collegians’ production of Oklahoma back in 1990.

The troupe – seven girls and one boy – were asked to take part to make the show “more professional”.

The dancers, aged 16 to 17 had only one day a week for five weeks to rehearse for the six numbers they would be doing– including a 12-minute routine!
