The Rising Stars theatre company is busy putting together the finishing touches to a musical extravaganza which is set to grace Beccles in July.

‘All Over the World’, which features a cast of nine to 17 year-olds, will take audience members on a journey far and wide through the continents, showcasing a number of songs, dances and colourful characters from all over the world.

With rehearsals only beginning in May, cast members have been meeting for six hours a week to rehearse, as well as putting in extra practice at home in order to bring the show up to the company’s high standards in a short space of time.

The cabaret-style show was written specially for Rising Stars, who will debut the new production on Friday, July 14 at Beccles Public Hall, before performing again on the following night, Saturday, July 15.

This latest set of performances will continue a long line of successful musical productions by Rising Stars, the youth section of the Waveney Light Opera Group.

Since their first production in 2010, they have dazzled audiences with classics such as Les Misérables and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, whilst their three performaces of Seussical earlier this year were met with widespread praise amongst the local community.

Despite their young ages, the group pride themselves on high-quality and professional performances, something which has impressively been reflected by their appearance on the shortlist for Best Youth Production at the regional NODA (National Operatic and Dramatic Association) awards every year since they were formed.
