activ8 Summer School 2009

activ8’s annual summer production at the Octagon Theatre is here again - you can read about last year's here. The summer project give the chance to 30 young people from the local community to rehearse and perform a world premiere in the Main Auditorium!

This year’s production Sing When You’re Winning has been written by Kim Wiltshire. This comic tale is based on the story of a community youth choir whose funding is pulled when their choir leader is found to fiddling the statistics.

The production is full of feel good music sung by the cast under the direction of Jo Sercombe, a Gospel Choir MD from Bath who’s previous choirs have been televised on the BBC’s Last Choir Standing competition.

The play gently explores the theme of ‘inclusion’ and addresses the tick box culture we live within. The young people involved in the production were recruited through open auditions.
