Students from the Pauline Quirke Academy in Milton Keynes took over Midsummer Place on Sunday with a flash mob.

More than 36 students took to the floor and performed three times throughout the day taking shoppers by complete surprise with a routine from smash hit musical Grease which brought lots of cheer and excitement.

Principal of the Milton Keynes Academy, Martin Lay, said: “We wanted to create a buzz and show what PQA is really all about! As well as learning skills for life PQA is a fun and friendly environment with plenty of performance opportunities including on a West End stage at Her Majesty’s Theatre London.”

PQA Milton Keynes first opened its doors in 2009 and is now one of 60 academies set up by Pauline Quirke all over the UK. Tuition is provided for four to 18 year olds and students spend three hours rotating through hour-long sessions in comedy and drama, musical theatre and film and television.

It runs at the Oakgrove School on Saturdays from 9.45am to 1pm. Spaces are limited, for more information please visit www.pqacademy.com or to book your free taster session please contact Martin and Di Lay on 07944 735161 or email martin@pqacademy.com
