Theatre group hunts for new members

YOUNGSTERS aged between nine and 16 are being urged to join the thriving youth theatre group being run by All and Sundry.

The Bromsgrove and Redditch theatre group performs regularly at several popular venues, including Artrix, the Palace Theatre and The Crescent in Birmingham.

The youth group was started by Ciara McGhie and Emma Hobday to cater for All and Sundry's ever expanding youth membership and, since then, it has grown in popularity.

Emma said “Both Ciara and myself remember being involved in theatre youth groups when we were young, and it was a brilliant experience to be part of regular classes, workshops and shows.

"It teaches children so much, especially about confidence and thinking independently, so we were very excited to extend All and Sundry to include a safe and fun youth section.”

The All and Sundry Youth Group meets on Wednesday evenings from 6.45pm until 9pm at the Bromsgrove Baptist Church Hall, New Road, Bromsgrove.

The group focuses on singing, acting and dance, but also offers specialised workshops in puppetry, mime and stage combat, among others.

The group also stages regular performances, and members will be invited to audition for the annual pantomime.

Ever since its launch, All and Sundry has always been a not-for-profit organisation focused on providing inexpensive theatre.

The youth group is just £2 per session, with all proceeds going towards the hall hire, refreshments and the All and Sundry group.

Ciara added: "We are really excited to see who turns up, and how many children want to be involved in this exciting project."
