Macclesfield Express - - THE LAUGHING BADGER -

●● A PER­FOR­MANCE group is stag­ing a pro­duc­tion of hit songs.

The Showstoppers show fea­tures fa­mous songs from Frozen, Hair­spray, An­nie, The Wizard of Oz, Whis­tle Down the Wind, Billy El­liot and Into The Woods.

It is be­ing staged by Cheshire Youth Group for New and Emerg­ing Tal­ent on Stage, known as CYGNETS.

Au­di­tions will be at St Michael’s Church, Mac­cles­field, on Fe­bru­ary 2 and 3 for peo­ple eight to 21 who would like to take part in the show.

Kalini Kent, who runs CYGNETS, said: “This is an ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­nity to join this young and vi­brant group and the rea­son for choos­ing a Showstoppers-type of pro­duc­tion is to give as many op­por­tu­ni­ties as pos­si­ble to ev­ery cast mem­ber in singing, danc­ing and act­ing.

The group is also plan­ning to per­form a ver­sion of the hit mu­si­cal Matilda.

The spe­cial abridged ver­sion of Roald Dahl’s book fea­tures songs and lyrics by Tim Minchin and a script by Den­nis Kelly.

CYGNETS are run­ning a three-day course from Fe­bru­ary 17 with a show on the fi­nal evening Fe­bru­ary 19 at 7.30pm. See www. or call Kalini Kent on 07780 685498.
