Royal & Derngate Youth Theatre’s Musical Companies will bring a special sports day to life this weekend with a production called Run!

As the story goes, it is Ella’s last day at primary school and her last chance to show that she is more than just the shy new girl in the area. She hopes that her mum will get to see her race, but that looks about as likely as her team winning gold.

A cast of 30 young actors, aged between eight and 18, will be joined by choirs from local primary schools.

Run! will be performed from Thursday, June 27 until Saturday, June 29 at 6pm, with Friday and Saturday matinees at 1.30pm. Tickets cost £8.
