A group of young theatre makers have presented their new mini-musical based on the forthcoming Olympics in Rio.

Rewind Youth Theatre in Blacon is run jointly by the city’s Theatre in the Quarter and Cheshire Dance and supported by the Blacon Education Village and Avenue Services.

Through dance, original songs and stories, the young people devised an enchanting story called The Olympic Torch.

Artistic director of Theatre in the Quarter, Matt Baker, said “The company was formed only last year and this is already their third production. I have been blown away by the sheer passion of these young people from Blacon.”

Lauren Tucker from Cheshire Dance added “These young people are so full of energy and whilst some of them may have ever danced before I think audiences will be delighted with how far they have come in a short time.”
