Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket - Shirley Bar­tynek

The multi- award- win­ning Ups and Downs Theatre group are de­lighted to re­turn to Hamil­ton Town House with this year’s show, Take 21.

Step into a world of fun, mu­sic and drama with the group for a truly up­lift­ing and mem­o­rable evening of en­ter­tain­ment at Hamil­ton Town House.

Full of smiles and burst­ing with tal­ent, The Ups and Downs Theatre Group are Scot­land’s hap­pi­est per­form­ers.

For more than 20 years, the in­cred­i­ble com­pany have been stag­ing an an­nual song and dance spec­tac­u­lar.

The fun-filled group for chil­dren and young adults with Down’s syn­drome and their sib­lings come to­gether ev­ery Sun­day to share mu­sic, theatre and dance.

Each March they put on a sell-out show in Hamil­ton Town House to dis­play their tal­ent and pro­mote the pos­i­tive side of Down’s syn­drome.

Ups and Downs pres­i­dent An­gela Jack, whose son Aaron (16) has been a mem­ber of the group since he was five, is im­mensely proud of all the chil­dren.

Last year the Hamil­ton-based group were hon­oured in the Sun­day Mail Great Scot Awards.

The tal­ented Ups and Downs Theatre Com­pany were an­nounced as the win­ners of the Spec­savers’ Com­mu­nity Cham­pion award – voted by thou­sands of read­ers and Spec­savers’ cus­tomers.

An­gela said: “The Ups and Downs were ab­so­lutely thrilled to win this award.

“It was an hon­our to be at this awards cer­e­mony with so many coura­geous and in­spi­ra­tional peo­ple.

“Win­ning the award in our 21st year means that we now have recog­ni­tion of how amaz­ing our cast are.

“They truly are in­spi­ra­tional and pro­fes­sional young peo­ple with an en­thu­si­asm to en­ter­tain that you can’t help but ad­mire.

“Our show is full of fun, laugh­ter and some tear-jerk­ing mo­ments and will leave you feel­ing up­lifted.

“We are on at The Hamil­ton Town House from March 7-12 (no Wed­nes­day per­for­mance).”
