Councillor Cheshire visits The Hawth Youth Theatre

The Hawth Youth Theatre began in September this year and is already proving to be a great success. Led by theatre professional Sarah Slator, the weekly sessions explore all aspects of theatre, including acting, voice and movement and run on Thursdays at 5pm (11-14 years) and 7.15pm (15-18 years).

On Thursday (26 November) Councillor Chris Cheshire, the Mayor of Crawley,  paid a visit to the Junior Youth Theatre members who were busy rehearsing for their performance of Charles DickensThe Chimes on Thurs 10 December at 7.30pm. They will also be joined by the Senior members who will perform A Christmas Carol.

After the performance in December the Youth Theatre will be asking audiences to dig deep and donate to the Mayor’s Charities for 2015/16.

This year the mayor has chosen the Crawley Community and Voluntary Service, which represents and offers support to all voluntary groups in the town, and also the Springboard Project which aims to support disabled children and young people to enjoy active social lives and helps build life skills,  independence, enhancing their wellbeing.

Tickets for The Chimes and A Christmas Carol are on sale now from The Hawth Box Office on 01293 553636 and online at
