Producer Wendy Blunt said: “The youth section have worked so well to put on a great show. We are so proud of each and every one of them - they all bring so much to the production. They all have a willingness to learn new skills and help out in any way they can.

“The younger cast members look up to the teenagers and the teenagers look after the younger ones. We are one big family.

“We are proud that our policy at Bolsover Drama Group is that everyone is welcome no matter what their ability - there are no exclusions.”

Other members of the production team are Donna Knowles, Dawn Shearwood and Lisa Brunt. The older members of the youth section have choreographed the show.
