The Chelis Theatre Company was launched in 1998 by a dance teacher and a drama teacher who hoped to provide quality performing arts training to young people.

Everything from acting, singing and dancing is practised at the club, which puts on pantomimes and musicals annually.

Last week saw the celebration of its 20th year with an emotional reunion attended by current and former students who entertained guests with their performances.

The company has performed musicals including Annie, A Little Princess and Bugsy Malone and will now perform Dick Whittington at The Blakehay Theatre on April 28 at 3pm and 7pm after it was forced to be postponed because of the snow.

Tickets, priced £9-11, are available from
