The project is being run by the professional youth theatre company, Loganwest Productions and performers had just days to perfect their lines.

Summer Holiday, which will be performed at the Playhouse. will feature a string of hits including The Young Ones, Bachelor Boy and Do ya Wanna Dance?, as well as the classic single Summer Holiday.

The show is a culmination of the Loganwest Summer Youth Project – a two-week intensive course, which has led to five full-scale performances.
