The performance featured three plays: Time trackers by First Stage (children aged five to 10), Dead Words by Upstage (10–13 years group) and Don’t Feed the Trolls by Centre Stage (aged 14–18).

The plays were devised by the classes and written by Linda Ekins, director of LEADA, an alternative drama academy where children make their voices heard.

LEADA was a finalist in the 2014 Fenland Enterprise Business Awards and continues to attract new members.

Next week, LEADA has two summer workshops: RATZ! (ages five to 10) starting on Monday with a performance on Wednesday, and Two Tribes (ages 10–18) starting next Thursday with performances on August 7-8. For more details visit www.leada.biz
