Sidmouth youth show aids the homeless
CAST and crew from Sidmouth Youth Theatre’s The Ragged Child production raises �486.53 for Exeter Shilhay Community
CAST and crew from Sidmouth Youth Theatre’s recent production of The Ragged Child held a bucket collection at each performance and raised �486.53 for Exeter Shilhay Community Ltd.
Marc Colson, manager of one of the charity’s projects, said: “In these difficult financial times this is a magnificent achievement and I believe the performance touched many people’s consciousness as the plight of poverty, unemployment and the homeless of 1848 sadly still occurs in some areas of the country today – including locally.”
Director Angela Davies added: “Knowing the work of Shilhay, it was very fitting to support such a worthwhile cause that helps people rebuild their lives through education and work.”
The money will support a future theatre production which Shilhay Community will perform across Devon. Called In Thee Face Of it will be at the Manor Pavilion Theatre, Sidmouth on June 3 at 8pm.
