A leading performing arts studio is calling on all past students to return for its 10 year anniversary event.

Talking Props Theatre Arts, which is based in Kidderminster, has helped nurture aspiring artistic talent in the community, training students in musical theatre, acting and various dance styles.

The studio will mark its milestone with a special catch-up event on Tuesday, April 2 from 7.30pm to 9.30pm at the studios on Green Street.

Former students will get the chance to reminisce about old times, reconnect with old friends, and learn about the upcoming anniversary celebrations.

The studio was established in 2014 and has grown from a small start in a community hall to becoming prominent enough to have its own studio premises.

Actor and director, Principal Michael Neri, said: "It's truly remarkable to see how far Talking Props has come since our inception.

"From our very first production of High School Musical to our upcoming 10th anniversary production of Beauty and the Beast at The Rose Theatre, each milestone is a testament to the dedication and talent of our students and staff."

The studio has also had success in competitions, having remained unbeaten in Musical Theatre for 10 consecutive years.

The studio has staged a variety of shows over the past decade, from Les Misérables and Ghost to Hairspray.

It has also played a central role in the careers of many aspiring performers, taking pride in several alumni training at prestigious stage schools such as Arts Ed, Urdang, Laine Theatre Arts, Rose Bruford, and Italia Conti.

The 10th anniversary celebration will also include a production of Beauty and the Beast for a three night run at The Rose Theatre from Wednesday, July 17 to Saturday, July 20, with the final night already sold out.
