Centre Stage Theatre are planning to produce and facilitate, with young people from the area, an original performance commemorating the munitions workers and towns of the area. The work will draw on archive material, social history, music and entertainment of the period.
Chris Jones, Producer of Centre Stage Theatre said: “We are looking for young people 14 years and above to be part of the performance project & also welcome anyone whatever age who would like to be part of this community project or just find out more.
An Information Evening is taking place at 7.30 pm, 10 September 2013 at The Anvil Hall, Gretna we hope, as many people will attend, as what we are planning is more than putting on a drama performance. We’re planning some talks to help us research the past and will need people of all ages to help us make the project a success.”
