The MADS group spent the last 10 months rehearsing for Saturday’s show, entitled ‘MADS Goes to the Movies’.

The night featured performances from hit films such as Ghostbusters, Singin’ in the Rain, Shrek and Frozen, and is the sixth Autumn headline performance it has run.

Pupils from St Margaret’s Primary School also joined for one number.

Group director Rochelle Smith, 26, said: “This is the main one we do – we have other little shows but this is quite a big show.
