THIRTY students from the nationally acclaimed, award winning Oscars Theatre Academy are teaming up with Honley Male Voice Choir to present a Christmas charity show of drama, dance and song.

The talented youngsters and the choirmen will present a programme of traditional Christmas fare and songs from the shows in a show at Holmfirth Civic Hall next Friday, December 7 (7.15pm).

The show is being organised by the charity, Crossroads Care in Mid Yorkshire which so far has raised £15,000 to help disabled people.

The money raised at the show will help to provide more care hours for carers and the people they support.

Together Oscars and the Honley men will sing excerpts from top musicals including Miss Saigon, Les Miserables and West Side Story. Solo spots will be sung by the Academy’s assistant principal soprano Emmy Wilde and the choir’s baritone soloist Brian Winterbottom.

The Academy which has its headquarters in New North Road, Huddersfield, teaches drama, dancing and singing to youngsters from the age of five into their early 20s. This year one of its singers sang in the Royal Albert Hall in the final of the National Music for Youth contest and the Academy’s choir have performed on television with Russell Watson.

Tickets for the show are available from Kirklees Tourist information centres.
