Spotlight Theatre is looking forward to a successful Festival of Arts in May following a £300 donation from Bridlington Rotary Club.
Chris Darling from Spotlight said: “We’re running a four day event as part of Bridlington’s Festival of arts, giving half day workshops to local primary school groups, youth groups and groups of adults with learning difficulties.
“This donation means we can keep the ticket prices really low and make the events accessible to everyone.
“The aim is to, within those half days, get each group to perform a short play from start to finish. This year we are doing Shakespeare and Chaucer plays, and for many on the younger participants this will be a great introduction to some of the classics.”
In addition to the Spotlight Showcase, held between May 17 and 20, the group will be holding a Murder Mystery night on Saturday May 19 at the Spotlight Theatre, with tickets priced at £7.50 for adults and £5 for students.
Tickets include a free glass of wine or a soft drink and are available at Bridlington Blinds and Curtains or on the door.
