Students attended a birthday celebration with a difference as hit show Stomp marked 13 years in the West End.
To mark the occasion, children from across the country gathered at the Ambassadors Theatre for a special matinee production.
Among them were a group of teenagers from the East London Science School, who also met the cast for a post-show question and answer session.
Steve McNicholas, co-creator of Stomp, said: “we wanted to find a different way to celebrate 13 years in the West End and what could be better than opening our doors to other 13-year-olds?”
It was organised by the Mousetrap Theatre Foundation, whose director Susan Whiddington said: “We have used this opportunity to reach out to schools in some of London’s most disadvantaged communities.”
