Theatrical group, Troublemakers, are to perform at Meadowgate School in Wisbech on Wednesday


The group has been newly set up by Eddie’s (Local Support for People with Learning Difficulties) with help from a Children In Need grant.

Its aim is to provide young people who have learning disabilities with the opportunity to develop their performing arts skills and try new creative activities.

Their motto, to ‘Dance your socks off, Sing your heart out, Act the part and cause some Trouble’, has seen the group work together on a new short film over the past two terms.

Once Upon a Time has been written by Troublemakers and incorporates other familiar characters and stories and will debut on the evening.

There will also be a talent showcase where each of the young people will perform various acts, including: singing, cheerleading and magic.

There will then be a glittery grand finale and award ceremony.

Jenny Bryant of Eddies said: “Our young people are extremely excited about their work and wish to share it with as many people as they can.”

She added that there are currently only three young members and a team of staff – a performing arts tutor, support worker – and three volunteers.

“We are sure there must be many more young people with learning difficulties who would benefit from our group.

“It is such a pleasure working with these talented youngsters and it would be great for them to see their group grow,” she added, “giving them many more performing opportunities”.

The performance will take place on Wednesday, July 1, from 4.15-5pm.
