All You Need Is Love, King's Lynn Young Players @ Springwood High School, King's Lynn

It wasn't just the topical Valentine theme which inspired this highly talented group to stage their most ambitious production to date – but also a very real love of theatre.
A total of 56 youngsters presented a polished show at Springwood High School and demonstrated that the future of King's Lynn Players is in competent hands.
Teenagers who have earned the Young Players a host of accolades displayed their talents in a pot pourri of entertainment.
In excerpts from Romeo and Juliet and The Importance of Being Earnest the older members of the group confirmed their potential for serious drama, and proved their versatility in Victorian melodrama.
Sophie Steer, Charles Hotson, Greg Hale and Estelle Boon were among the Young Players adding to their experience in a variety of roles which were a credit to the company.
Poetry, song and dance, all on the theme of love, added to the variety – and there was plenty of humour too, not least in the sketch centred on a matrimonial bureau.
Youngsters are encouraged to tread the boards from the age of five and the young set performed their contributions with great charm and aplomb.
