Every year the Grand Theatre in Blackpool gives local schoolchildren an opportunity to perform on its stage.
Schools Alive will take place next Monday to Wednesday with the Au Revoir Review later in the year, on June 30 and July 1.
During Schools Alive 2,000 pupils from virtually every Blackpool school will perform a number of songs and dances, play in bands and orchestras, and, for many, enjoy their first introduction to live theatre.
The Au Revoir Review gives youngsters in their final year the chance to showcase their talents.
For many it is the first time they will get to perform in front of their friends and family.
