On Saturday, November 26, TO raise funds for Rising Youngstars’ forthcoming production of Guys & Dolls, the young cast took a break from rehearsals on Saturday past, to help shoppers pack their bags at the Co-op in The Roods, Kirriemuir.

Rising Youngstars is a charity which provides children from across Angus with the chance to appear in full-scale musicals and, from February 8 until February 11, over 60 local singers, dancers and actors aged between five and 18 years, will be appearing in Guys & Dolls at Kirriemuir Town Hall.

“The Rising Youngstars are so talented and always show amazing commitment and are completely dedicated to ensuring their audiences enjoy a fabulous evening of entertainment,” said Charlotte Turner Kersley, Rising Youngstars assistant director and choreographer.

“However, as well as talent, commitment and dedication, putting on a top-class show also involves considerable costs, which is why we’re currently fund-raising as well as rehearsing.

“Thanks to the customers of the Co-op, we raised a fabulous amount for Guys & Dolls. We would like to thank everyone who donated money or bought raffle tickets for our hampers – and hope to see them at a performance of Guys & Dolls!”

Rising Youngstars’ production of Guys & Dolls is being performed at Kirriemuir Town Hall at 7.30 pm from Wednesday, February 8 until Saturday, February 11.

Tickets – which would be ideal Christmas presents - will be on sale soon. More details to follow.
