Dereham's youth theatre group Dosytco will take you back through time in their upcoming concert with a decade for everyone to remember.

After the amazing success of Hairspray back in April, the young performers of Dereham Theatre Company are getting ready to put on another show stopping performance.

Sounds of Summer: Top Hits from the Hot 100 will be set in an American Diner which will see the show move back from the 1950's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and through to the noughties.

With hits such as Ain't No Mountain High Enough, I Love Rock and Roll and Single Ladies there really is something for everyone that will make you feel Footloose.

It will certainly be a challenge to top their performance of Hairspray, which the National Operatic and Dramatic Association described as an 'amazing, sizzling and energetic, slick and fast production'.

This concert is very different to any that Dosytco have performed in the past, as it will be centred on a narrative involving the opening of Dec's Diner and the events that follow.

The production team remains the same as it was for Hairspray and after having such a good time; Chris Dilley, Helen Curson and Jodie Quirke are all back in the studio for rehearsals every Wednesday and Sunday with the group.
