Our young cast are immensely talented, energetic, passionate, and dedicated, delivering vibrant performances every single show.”
They added that there has been interest in the show from overseas, and said: “We are currently in negotiation for our first overseas production, the first of what we hope are many to come. We would like to thank everyone who has supported the show.”
