Spirit Youth Group, Cheddington

Get ready for The Wizard of Oz

Rehearsals are well underway at Spirit Youth Group for their next big musical production, The Wizard of Oz.

Some of the most talented children from Cheddington and surrounding area will be performing this timeless show, which promises to provide plenty of songs and dances and some great special effects, on 29 and 30 June at the village hall.

The group, currently comprising 34 members between the ages of 7 and 16, are led by local drama enthusiasts Colin Bryer, Tamar Walker, Gray Pledge, Emma Russon, Ian Hale and Matthew Minors.

Spirit puts on a full scale production every year at the Village Hall. Previous productions include Bugsy Malone, Peter Pan, Treasure Island and Arabian Nights. Throughout the year members enjoy games and improvisations that encourage self-confidence, teamwork, discipline, quick-thinking, self-expression, good communication, creativity and much more.

Established in 1995, Spirit meets every Wednesday in term time at the village hall, between 6.30 and 8.00pm. The group is fortunate to have a host of talented adults who help to put on the shows. Some are parents and many are involved with CADS, Cheddington Pantomime Group, MASH and other local drama societies.

Young people are welcome to visit and see whether they would like to become full members, although there is usually a waiting list. Spirit is always on the lookout for adults to help with everything from set building to make-up.
