A musical by Charles Dickens
Faringdon Junior School, 26 Gloucester Street, Faringdon SN7 7HY
This was a workshops for junior school children involving some half a dozen sessions and about 30 children aged from 8-13. A few drama group veterans worked together to put the youngsters through their paces. They were then able to put on a show of their own, based on excerpts from the hit musical Oliver. Leading parts were taken in turn by several budding thespians, many of whom will have appeared in later pantomimes over the next few years. Around 120 parents went along to see the final show.
Among the children taking part were Catherine Walden, Emma Glusing, Lisa Moore, Christina Willett, Louise Butler, Louise Benton, Paul Summerfield, Heather Gillies, Karen Pugh, and Philip Hurst.
