Theatretrain Kings Lynn Perform with Collabro

Theatretrain King’s Lynn have just performed with Collabro, with guest Kerry Ellis at the Corn Exchange as part of their “Road to the Royal Albert Hall”.

Collabro, the world’s most successful musical theatre boy band, won “Britain’s got Talent” in 2014 with the biggest majority of votes ever, and now record with Simon Cowell’s label Syco.

“Everyone had a fab time, the show was extremely well organised and highly professional and the students all rose to the challenge! It was an honour to perform to a sell out audience alongside such talented performers, and the kids were really excited to have Kerry Ellis in our dressing room taking selfies!”
