Rehearsals for Sinbad the Sailor

Youngsters across the Kettering region are hard at work putting on the latest production of Sinbad the Sailor.

The show runs from Wednesday December 30 to Saturday January 2 and has been put on by the Kettering Youth Theatre Group.

It has been running since 1974 and the group is devoted to allowing local young people the chance to act, sing, dance, perform and have a lot of fun along the way.

David Burke, the group’s chairman said: “All of the hard work that the young people put in over a period of months is geared up to putting on the production which always provides great entertainment for all who come and see it.

“In recent years the KYTG has won several awards for their work and are always raising the standards to a high level.”

Tickets for the show cost £8 for adults and £6.50 for children and pensioners. Family tickets for four are available at a cost of £25.

The show is at the Masque Theatre in Barton Seagrave. For tickets call 01536 414141 or visit
