THE local children of Performance Drama School are gearing up for their 11th annual variety show at The King’s Hall, Ilkley.

Pupils who attend classes at Otley Courthouse and St Mary’s Parish Centre in Burley-in-Wharfedale are getting very excited as they prepare performances from popular musicals, films and plays including A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Sound of Music, Just William and The Lion King.

The children have already enjoyed huge success this year in various fields, such as swiping a multitude of first and second places at The Wharfedale Festival of Performing Arts, a 100 per cent success rate in Trinity Guildhall examinations and being cast in a number of roles by casting directors.

The performances will take place at 2.30pm and 7pm on Saturday, June 28, at The King’s Hall Ilkley. Tickets are priced at £13 for adults, £9 concessions with a special group price of £5/ticket in groups of over 10 people.

Tickets will be available on the door, or can be reserved on 01943 830497.
