The kids in Tipton are revolting – but it’s just a stage they are going through.
The children of TIPPS junior section are enjoying their roles as rebellious pupils in the production of Detention, to be staged later this month.
In the play, the 'revolting children' are being punished by being kept behind at school by history teacher 'Boring Bolton'.
As he talks about historical events from Victorian times to the end of World War Two, the rest of the cast bring the stories to life through drama, song and dance.
The play has been written and compiled by Natalie Anning from TIPPS, and directed by Natalie and fellow member Claire Devin.
