Our big summer show. Written and directed for our Saturday Theatre Company by Bart Lee, and supported by Triple Threat students, will be even bigger and better than Avalon!

'Elizabeth Moon and the secret of the Midnight Orphanage'

Stolen from her home as a baby Elizabeth grows up working in the secret tunnels beneath an old run down Victorian mansion. A team of orphans plan their escape but their captors the wicked "Carers" foil their plans and lock all of the children away. Terrified and alone, Elizabeth is visited by the mysterious Mrs I who shows her the way to believe in herself and escape once and for all!

A new play full of colourful characters, comedy, drama, imagination and music written by Bart Lee and the Medusa Theatre Company.

Children will love this show, which will see the whole auditorium transformed! With professional lighting, directing and staging, it is a show not to be missed!
