Members of a youth amateur theatre group will be
showcasing their talents as part of a town's arts festival.
C.A.T.S. Youth, the junior branch of Cheadle Amateur Theatrical Society, is putting on 'The Saturday Surprise Show' as part of Cheadle Arts Festival Week 2014.
The show, directed by 18-year-old Miriam Hermolle, will be a mixture of singing, dancing and comedy sketches to showcase the talents of C.A.T.S. Youth members.
The society, which rehearses at Cheadle Primary School, have recently finished the successful run of the annual pantomime, 'Aladdin and his Magic Lamp' in which more than 20 youth members aged between 11 and 25 appeared.
The youth members made their debut appearance in December in 'The Railway Children – The Musical,' which was also warmly received by the audiences in Cheadle.
C.A.T.S Youth received a grant from the Cheadle and District Arts Forum to start up the group, and to purchase costumes and scenery for the 'Railway Children'.
After finishing the pantomime, the members decided they wanted to give back something to the Arts Forum and came up with the idea of a variety show.
Alan R. Price, director of both previous productions said: "The youngsters have been hard at work at rehearsing and are excited about performing again."
'The Saturday Surprise Show' is at the Guild Hall, Tape Street, Cheadle on Saturday March 22 at 7.30pm.
Tickets for the show are £3, which includes refreshments and are available from 01538 751173.
