Pupils from Cundall Manor School are attempting to produce an evening of drama and music with a difference, helping other young people as part of Children in Need.
Pupils as young as NINE are taking to the stage on Wednesday 16 November to perform as part of efforts to raise money for the annual BBC appeal.
The evening of entertainment is being organised by pupils from the school, with Henry Calvert directing the show which will include exerts from ‘Charlie and The Chocolate Factory’ and a short piece from the uplifting play ‘Unicorns and Alleycats.’
Music will be performed by pupils with a wide array of instruments and singing taking place.
14-year-old Henry last organised a show for Children in Need two years ago, raising nearly £1400 for the charity.
He said: “I have been raising money for children in need for the past 7 years and each year I have tried to make it bigger and better.”
“Children in Need is a great cause. We tried the show format two years ago and it went really well. Hopefully the show will be a great success and we will raise more money than last time.”
He added: “Thank you to performers, teachers, and parents for all the hard work getting ready for the show so far.”
