Adam Henderson a member of the Showtime cast recently took over the role of rehearsal photographer, working towards one  of his Scout section badges he took a number of digital photographs.

These images were taken during a recent rehearsal and have been uploaded as evidence of his work.


Sketch rehearsals continue and we’ve got some excellent scripts this year….

The Cub Gang continue to impress with their acting abilities! They put so much effort in every rehearsal, check them out below!

This week they joined the main gang and another number was set 🙂 huge progress made once again!

Today is Gang Photo day and we’ve had one of our rehearsal photographers present to take the eye catching photo for our Showtime programme 🙂

Look, he’s even got a great pose!

With only 7 weeks to go before show week, we’ve progressed more into the blocking of our numbers and the staging of each act.

Today we welcomed the Cubs into the main rehearsal room, we’ve danced, sung and blocked various numbers. Our costume department snuck into rehearsals to ensure our cast are equipped with the right size costume, thankfully Ania has it all in hand and they will all look amazing!

We have also reminded our cast that next week is the last week before we remove the lyrics from rehearsals, so learning and practising over the next 7 days is crucial!

We’ll be back next week with more fun, challenge and adventure of Showtime 🙂


Our Cub Gang continue to rehearse a very special number for our 2018 show. They are working incredibly hard week in and week out, learning lines, choreography and a whole load of surprises!

They join the main cast each week to be part of the older gang ensuring they learn and practice their other key roles in the show!

Well done to the Cub Gang and Cub Team for working tirelessly to come up with what will be a hugely entertaining number.


After taking part in various local remembrance services today the cast arrived at the Showtime rehearsals. Full of energy and enthusiasm they continued to sing songs from a main number and we added more complex  choreography to the routines.

The cast continue to dedicate a huge amount of time and effort to the show supported by all of the adult volunteers in many roles.

With tickets now on sale we hope you will  support us by purchasing your tickets! Flyers and posters will soon be available for distribution.

Our Choreographers are working hard with our Showtime dancers to create some magical movements for various numbers in the show, the young people are working extremely hard to learn their moves!

Here’s a sneak speak of what they are upto 🙂

Rehearsals continued today and we’ve made huge progress with our show. The cast have returned after half term full of energy and enthusiasm.

We’ll continue rehearsing over the coming weeks to ensure our show is fit for the Playhouse and our huge audiences in January 2018!
