Over 300 young people hae auditioned to take part
Talented youngsters from across the Dartford area will be taking part in a special showcase event at the Orchard Theatre on Sunday (February 5) with the aim of raising money to fund future arts projects in the area.
The project claims their aim is to “challenge the sometimes negative representation that young people face in today’s society and instead show the potential young people truly possess, allowing them to express themselves through music, singing, dance and drama.”
Over the past few months more than 300 young people have auditioned for the show at schools, youth hubs and performing arts groups.
The result is a show entitled Dartford’s Young Gifted, featuring the top 28 acts across the spheres of music, dance and drama.
These include the Sapphire dance academy, The Edge Dance and Theatre School and Fryday’s Academy of Irish, with members of Dartford Youth Council acting as comperes.
Tickets for the show, which begins at 6pm, cost £9.50 for adults and £7.50 for under-16s, and are available via orchardtheatre.co.uk/Online/tickets-dartfords-young-gifted-dartford-2017.
