A YOUTH theatre group in Chandler’s Ford put the finishing touches to their all-singing, all-dancing musical extravaganza set to be performed from tomorrow.

Centrestage Productions Youth Theatre have been practicing hard at their final rehearsals for their upcoming show, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, with two full run-throughs featuring around 30 performers aged up to 18.

The musical, based on the popular film, is set to be performed by the group from February 13-17 at The Point in Eastleigh.

The show tells the story of three friends, Tick, Bernadette and Adam, a glamorous Sydney-based performing trio who agree to take their show to the middle of the Australian outback, hopping aboard a battered old bus, nicknamed Priscilla by the group.

The show includes hit numbers like It’s Raining Men, I Will Survive, Boogie Wonderland and Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.

Parent Claire Harris, whose children Lucy, 15, and Katy, 12, both take part in the youth theatre, said: “The cast have been rehearsing since September every Sunday.

“I can’t wait to see it - it’s such a good opportunity. They are so professional.”

Founded in 1992, the company offers young people chance to get into theatre from a young age.

There are three age groups: CPYT Juniors for school years 3-6; CPYT Academy for school years 7 - 9 and CPYT at The Arch - school years 10 plus.

The group recently announced that their summer production will be Rock of Ages, which will be performed from July 29-August 4.
