New production from Seaford Youth Drama Group

SEAFORD Youth Drama Group is presenting its 27th summer production The Star which was specially written for the group.

The Star is set in a performing arts academy and centres on the character of Jane played by 15-year-old Amy Gough. Jane is struggling to find her place in the world -a world obsessed with instant celebrity.

There is lots of fun, youthful exuberance, chants and songs.

The play is preceded by a short honours display showcasing just a few of this year’s Eastbourne Festival Work.

The group achieved a staggering 15 honours.

It will run at The Barn Theatre in Saxon Lane Seaford on Saturday July 9 and Sunday July 10 July at 7pm.

Tickets cost £5 for adults and £2.50 for children under 15.

They are available from Seaford News, Broad Street, Seaford - from Stephen Newberry, Church Street, Seaford - from members or at the door.

Chris Stanley of Seaford Youth Drama Group said: “Seaford Youth Drama has earned a reputation for its professional training and entertainment, much of the work presented is new.

“The group ethos and enjoyment of what they are doing is encouraged.”

The group takes part in street theatre, the Eastbourne Festival, charity events as a well as plays.

Successful alumni include Lauren Taylor – Waking the Dead and Holby City, Greg Finnigan-Doctors. Oscar Lloyd- Emmerdale, Megan Barnard – in a theatre company touring Spain, script writer Paul Jenkins and two members are with the National Youth Theatre.
