A DRAMA group aimed at teenagers in Bridlington has been presented with a cheque from Bridlington Round Table – and has a host of other fund-raising events lined up.
Penguin Pie, which offers 14 to 18-year-olds interested in a career in drama the chance to perform in their own productions, was awarded a cheque for £960 from Bridlington Round Table chairman Jason Padden to enable members to produce sets, costumes and make up materials for future productions.
Due to the success of the youth set-up, from which three members moved on to London based drama schools last September, an over-18s group has been created which will take a performance to this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August.
Penguin Pie is also busy with a number of other fund-raising events.
They will be presenting a Whose Pie Is It Anyway? night at the Nags Head pub in Bridlington, based on the popular TV show Whose Line Is It Anyway?, on Saturday, April 9.
And between Monday, April 11 and Friday, April 15, performer Frances Bean will aim to swim 800 to 1,000 lengths – an equivalent of 12 to 15 miles – at a swimathon in Driffield.
Anyone who would like to sponsor Frances, or has any other fund-raising ideas, should visit www.penguinpie.co.uk or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
