THE FAIRYTALE is only just beginning for a former Stratford College student who is performing on stage at Disneyland Paris.

Rosie Hale studied musical theatre at the Alcester Road college before going on to find fame in last year’s Britain’s Got Talent as part of the Disney girl group Misstasia.

The four-piece impressed TV judges Amanda Holden, Simon Cowell, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon with their first audition when they sang Part of your World from the 1989 Disney film The Little Mermaid.

Although the group did not make it to the grand final of the ITV competition, which was won by Jules O’Dwyer and her dog Matisse, Welford resident Rosie kept on singing.

And she has since gone on to land the role of The Storyteller in Disney’s new show ‘The Forest of Enchantment’ at Disneyland Paris.

One of 14 Brits to star in the show – including fellow BGT competitor Jordan Todd – Rosie had to see off more than 200 rivals in Paris and London to bag the part.

She said: “Every number’s got really special moments, and we do something in every one, so yeah it’s so much fun.”

The 20-minute show, which features characters from Brave, The Jungle Book, Tangled, Tarzan and Pocahontas, is performed five times a day in the main park.

It is set to run at the Chaparral Theater until May 8.
