YOUNGSTERS shone in the spotlight as they took to the stage with a show they helped create.
The members of Slaithwaite Kids Drama Group wowed the audience with their performance, called ‘Deadline’, which they staged at Slaithwaite Civic Hall.
Deadline, which is about a teacher who is struggling to put on a stage show on time, was devised by the young performers, who also helped paint the set and provided their own costumes.
A cast of 20 children, all from Slaithwaite and the surrounding villages, performed to the packed audience.
The performance was the first show of the year for the community drama group, which meet at Slaithwaite community centre on Bank Gate.
The group involves local children in all aspects of performing arts, from acting, singing and dancing to designing and creating their own sets and costumes.
The group is always looking for new members. For more information contact Lee Jenkinson on 07806 886667.
