A special show marking the double anniversary of two youth drama groups will showcase young talent from around the region.

King's Lynn Young Players, which is turning 80, and Springtime Singers, celebrating 20 years, are staging a gala production to mark their respective milestones.

The production is made possible by financial aid from the Norfolk Community Foundation (NCF).

Sharon Fox, director of King's Lynn Young Players, said: "We have always championed the next generation of performers and for almost 35 years we have run a weekly youth group which has seen many performers head to the West End and beyond."

Wendy Fisher, its chairwoman, said: "It’s so important to encourage youngsters to get involved in theatre.

"It's great for social interaction and confidence and can help greatly in adult life.

"We are delighted to join forces with the Springtime Singers and so excited to have received the NCF Grant again this year."

Tickets for the performances at the Guildhall of St George on June 22 and 23 are now on sale.
