Happy Gleeaster Variety Show 2018
We were delighted to have received a small grant from Powys Youth Theatre Development Scheme ,Peoples Postcode Lottery and Hay Cheese Market Community fund to put on 3 shows with a cast of 7-14 year olds. It iwas a variety show to enable all abilities to join in with a song. a dance, a comedy sketch/routine and magic. We rehearsed every Saturday from January - March 2018 at Clyro Village hall with both Junior and Senior groups working together. .
We worked with Mr Bamboozle, the magician, to develop magic skills and teach individuals a trick or two. On Hay Independence Day on Saturday 31st March, a procession at NOON led us to the Parish Hall to perform our show in front of Hay's very own look-a-like King Richard at 2pm. It was Glee style and at Easter so we called it The Happy Gleeaster Royal Variety Show. There were 2 other performances at Clyro village hall, one to family and friends on 24th March at 4pm and one to Hay Day Café for people living with dementia on March 28th at 1-15.
