A THEATRE school owner from Flintshire has completed months of hard work making a musical medley to bring smiles to people during lockdown.

In addition to running her Frodsham-based theatre school Broadway Bound, Kayleigh Strong is a part time Youtuber.

The 31-year-old, from Flint, has built up a following of almost 50,000 subscribers with her covers of many Disney and musical songs.

She told the Leader her latest video, a medley inspired by streaming service Disney+, was a complex task but she is hoping it keeps people smiling during lockdown.

Miss Strong, who now lives in Frodsham, said: "I have about 40 to 50 students at Broadway Bound but since lockdown I have had to stop all of my classes unfortunately, so I am not working at the moment at all.

"I started my Youtube channel about four years ago and I do it for fun. "I've been on and off with it over the last few years but since lockdown I just decided to run with it.

"It's actually been a really good thing to take a break and do something I love but have not been able to dedicate time to in the past.

"This medley has taken me a few months to do because it takes a good few weeks to record the vocals, then the filming with the costumes and wigs - then there's all of the editing.

"I am constantly working on other videos, I have two other medleys in progress at the moment so it is keeping me busy.

"People seem to be really enjoying it. Hopefully it will inspire people to get creative and keep smiling."

The medley contains songs from Disney titles such as Hercules, Moana, Mulan and Aladdin.
