Cumbria Crack

Young stars step into the Rosehill spotlight

Talented young performers from West Cumbria are preparing to take to the Rosehill Theatre stage for a special evening of entertainment.

Live & Electric – Young Stars, on Friday 30 November, features members of West Cumbria’s Sing Stars singing school, Made For Stage music and drama club, and numerous solo performers as well as a house band.

It is presented by West Cumbrian music professionals Zoe Warren and Lee Shackley, of After 4 Productions.

Zoe said: “Rehearsals are going well. When the band and performers came together it was lovely to see how the children all reacted.

“It’s their first time with a live band and it’s all very exciting! They have been rehearsing regularly and preparing for a cracking show.”

Ages range from seven to 17 and the programme on the night is set to include many favourite songs from pop stars, musicals and films.

It will be Zoe and Lee’s third themed Live & Electric event at the Moresby-based theatre this year, following the success of The Sound of Musicals in July and a Songwriters showcase in April.

Zoe added: “It feels great to be organising an event like this. We could see everyone’s faces light up as soon as they rehearsed the first group song with the band.

“It feels like something really special!”

Live & Electric – Young Stars begins at 7.30pm on Friday 30 November. Advance tickets are available at a lower price than the door charge. Contact Rosehill on 01946 692422 or see
