CHILDREN will be getting a taste of the limelight when they star in a tribute show this weekend.

Twenty one pupils from The Bluecoat School in Stamford will appear on stage in the Unfortgettable ’50s and ’60s show at Stamford Corn Exchange tomorrow night.

Management company Prism Music approached the school to find a backing choir for a performance of Rocky Robin.

Class teacher Morag Richardson said the children have been working hard on their song and dance routine during the last few weeks.

She said: “They are excited about performing on stage and have been told they will have their own dressing room. I think they feel like little stars at the minute.”

The Drifters’ singer Michael Williams visited the school on Tuesday to hear the children rehearse.

Mrs Richardson added: “One of the children knew all of The Drifters’ songs because her mum is a big fan. They all got autographs to take home.”
