Following an audition process, 17-year-old Georgia Hilton from Adlington was one of only 20 people out of over 2,000 applicants to be chosen to study full time at Italia Conti Stage School in Surrey.

In the hope of turning her dream into a reality, Georgia, who has been performing since she was four, will be holding a Road to Conti Showcase at Adlington Community Centre on Friday evening (May 6) at 7.30pm.

The former St. Michael’s Chorley pupil perfects her dance skills at St Paul’s Adlington Amateur Theatre and and Jay Em Studios Dance School where she performs ballet tap and modern dance.
