“This was a fantastic performance by very talented young people. It proves again how lucky we are to have such a bright future our borough”
National Youth Theater worker Kane Husbands said:
“I’d like to say an enormous thank you to everyone who attended the performance of “I Wish…”, at the Civic Hall in Brierley Hill. The Playing Up 1 students did a fantastic job and we were all very pleased and proud of them: as their year long course comes to an end. I hope everyone enjoyed the show, and the students were so thankful for all of your support.”
