Freemasons Cash Boost for Youth Theatre in Consett

Cash Boost for Youth Theatre


React Youth Theatre received a major cash boost on Sunday 9th October, having been presented with a cheque for £1,000 by Durham Benevolence. The award will be used to help with the costs of putting on their forthcoming show “Peter Pan –  a Musical Adventure” at the Empire Theatre in Consett.

The cheque was presented by Brian Graham who said “It’s a great pleasure to present this award to a worthwhile community group encouraging the young children from Consett and surrounding areas to experience acting, and gain such confidence”.  Brian was joined by Oliver Whitwood from Consett’s Benfeldsyde Lodge.

Beverley Harrison, on behalf of React Youth Theatre, said “We are very grateful for this generous donation as we are a voluntary organisation and all of our income comes from fundraising.  Receiving such a great amount of money gives our fundraising such a boost and allows us to progress with our forthcoming show”.

“Peter Pan – a Musical Adventure” is to be staged at the Empire Theatre in Consett from the 14th to 16th March 2017. Tickets are available from the Theatre on 01207 218171 (or book online) Prices £8 (concession £7)
