Miss Deryl and her husband Mark also run a production company that produces shows, Northern Productions.  Last year they produced 12 shows of Annie and 12 shows of Snow Queen.Photo from production of Annie

They took both shows on tour and performed in 12 prestigious theatres around the north. They auditioned for the lead adult roles for Annie and took 40 pupils from the academy on tour playing the orphans. In the Snow Queen, Snow Queen was played by their niece, Chloe Bolton, who has been a pupil since she was 3 years old. The Snow Queen was a full length ballet based on Hans Christian Anderson’s fairy tale. Miss Deryl took a year to write, choreograph, source music and plan the tour, and then rehearse up to performance. Mark did the sound and lighting.

The shows received rave reviews and sell out performances. In Clitheroe people were queuing down the street for tickets long after the ‘sold out’ signs had been put up.
