On the 24th March, Westward Ho! Youth Theatre (WHYT) performed at The Pier House as part of the WHAAM Junior Showcase in aid of the RNLI. Audience members were treated to two songs from its next show this July, Fiddler on the Roof Jr., and some of the younger members performed Naughty from the musical Matilda.
Pat (Hughes), Chair Appledore RNLI Fundraising Guild, commented, “On behalf of the Appledore RNLI, I would like to say what a marvellous evening of entertainment, from so many talented local young people. It was a real treat to hear them and to witness so much enthusiasm from them. We are proud to be associated with this lovely event. We would also like to say thank you for the money raised for our local Lifeboat.”
John Barton, organiser of WHAAM JR, was full of praise for the hard work and dedication by the Westward Ho! Youth Theatre members. “They started the Youth Session full of zest and enthusiasm which was very well received by an audience of over 100 proud parents and others. We wish WHYT all the very best in their next production of ‘Fiddler on the Roof’.”
