Gorleston-based Dusmagrik Young People’s Theatre Company is crossing the water to perform a fundraising concert at St George’s Theatre Great Yarmouth.

Money raised will go towards travel expenses for the group to travel to Yarmouth’s twin town of Rambouillet in France, where they have been invited to perform as part of the Twinning Association’s 60th anniversary celebrations in June.

More than 20 young people aged from 11-16 will be going complete with about 80 costumes and various props.

The fundraising concert is on Sunday, May 1 at 3pm and will be a preview of the performance they are taking to France. Director Mary Carter said: “We have decided to do a selection of songs and dances which reflect Great Yarmouth as a seafaring port and seaside destination.

“It’s the first time many of the group will have been to France and they are looking forward to meeting young people in Rambouillet and trying out their French speaking.”

Tickets are £7, concessions £5, are available from the theatre box office on 01493 331484 or online at
