Shaftesbury’s young people are sometimes criticised because a handful of them indulge in anti-social behaviour.
Shaftesbury Arts Centre’s youth drama co-ordinator Sophie Lester says locals should attend next month’s production of Bugsy Malone to witness what talented youngsters can achieve when they work together.
Sophie chats with Alfred’s Jon Corry about the show, which has been driven by under 18s – on stage and behind-the-scenes. And Sophie announces another way younger people can become involve in the show. She is seeking designs for the cover of the programme.
Bugsy Malone starts on 7th October.
