A teenage theatre group is seeking new recruits for their production taking place at the Arc Theatre on April 18 and 19.

The youngsters, aged between 12 and 16, from Trowbridge and Bradford on Avon, are part of the Take the Lead group and are putting together the production of Pop! entirely by themselves.

They are looking for additional cast members and behind the scenes helpers.

Group member Issy Jacob, 15, said: “The cast and I value this opportunity and I know that the final production will go to show how much young people like us can pull off something of this level.

“This can only happen if we manage to find some others like us prepared to grab the project with both hands and get stuck in.”

Trowbridge Area Board gave a grant of £800 in support and Trowbridge Art has helped.

Catherine Bruton, pictured, the Bradford on Avon author who wrote Pop!, visited the group’s rehearsals to wish them luck.
