A YOUTH theatre group has been boosted with a community group's sponsorship for their summer.

The Oswestry Lions Club has agreed to sponsor the Attfield Theatre youth group A Little Bit Dramatic, with a number of Lions attending the group's inaugural performance in March of this year.

A spokesman for the Lions said they were delighted to be supporting a group with a lot of talent.

They said: " We were amazed at the talent.

"The performance was written, performed and directed by the young theatre group who also provided stage furniture, lighting and sound throughout.

"The Attfield Theatre Company is very keen to encourage young people to take an active part in all aspects of theatre and to feel able to explore their own talents and interests, to work as part of a group and be comfortable to put forward their own ideas.

"The company was formed in 1928 and so have a wealth of experience to pass on to the young people of this area and facilities to encourage them in their enjoyment of all facets of the theatre."

The A Little Bit Dramatic theatre youth group is meeting on Saturday, June 25 and would welcome young people interested in being part of the new group to come along meet the team.
