FIFTY TWO youngsters took part in a five-day drama workshop in Mablethorpe culminating in two performances.

The Tennyson Players have organised the annual event for 13 years usually hiring a professional company, but this year after funding shortfalls, decided to run their own.

Tennyson School hall became a circus for the week, with the youngsters basing their performance on the life of ex-pupil Russell Canning, the Mablethorpe ‘boy done good’ who now owns the famous Russell’s Circus.

There were several scenes and 12 songs with their own dance routines and the youngsters learned an array of circus skills. The shows ended with a giant human pyramid.

Plans are already being put in place for next year’s Easter workshop which is hoped to be bigger and better than ever.
