At bRAVO! Theatre Workshops, Stowmarket and Newmarket, they wanted to celebrate their fifth anniversary in a special way, so they decided to audition for a show at Disneyland Paris. They loved their performance and accepted them, so they had to get busy fundraising to help with the expense of the trip. They had a quiz night, a chocolate bingo night, a psychic evening and a first aid CPR training course to name a few.
They rehearsed and practised and finally were ready. On Saturday 5th August, 95 performers and supporters set off for Paris. They enjoyed a couple of days in the parks while they were there, but the highlight was their performance in The Videopolis Theatre. Forty-seven children aged seven to 17 sang their hearts out with a medley of 20 songs; it was a treat for their proud families and for the other theatregoers too.
They have lots planned for the coming months – a performance at The Royal Albert Hall, their Christmas Variety Show and two musicals, their versions of The Wizard of Oz and Legally Blonde, all being performed at Needham Market Community Centre.
They had a Halloween workshop on Thursday 26th October, where, in addition to their usual mix of drama and singing, they had a very special street dance teacher that came to teach two sessions. Lynn Bailey from LK School of Dance is an amazing teacher and her school has had massive success in the European Hip Hop Championships.
If you would like to come and join in the fun, they meet every Friday evening at The Boys Brigade Hall, in Stowmarket.
