Can you Hear the Voices Sing?

Exmouth’s youth musical theatre group, Centre Stage, is appealing to the local community to help their voices be heard in 2020.

For fifty years, Centre Stage has been delighting Exmouth audiences with award-winning musical performances, but outdated equipment is putting the quality of future productions at risk. So, the registered charity has launched an appeal to fund the purchase of much-needed radio microphones and headsets.

Mark Worsley, the Centre Stage President, comments “Staging a production is a massive undertaking and our talented young performers work exceptionally hard to deliver a great show. We always receive brilliant feedback from our audiences and want to enhance their enjoyment by making sure every word can be clearly heard.”

“As we’re an inclusive company, we keep our membership fees low, which makes it a struggle to find the money for extras such as this. It would mean so much to our members if the local community could support us with a donation.”

Centre Stage began life in 1971 and has been staging musicals every year since then. The musical performances may have changed, but the aims are the same – to develop young people through the practical involvement in performing arts, to build confidence, self-esteem and maturity and most of all to give a life-enhancing sense of belonging to a company of like-minded people.

Many former members have gone on to study at theatre schools including Bristol Old Vic, Mountview, and Guildford School of Acting with some pursuing successful careers in the West End and national theatres.

Centre Stage’s next performance is West Side Story, which will be showing at the Exmouth Pavilion from March 31st to April 4th. Tickets are available via the Pavilion Box Office.

November Update

Who can believe it’s been three weeks since this autumn’s run of Oklahoma!

We received some wonderful feedback from our Friends in and around Exmouth and were pleased to meet visitors to Devon who’d braved the weather and left their hotels to spend the evening with us.

During a week which weather-wise can only be described as wet, we’d like to offer our thanks to you, the audience. Without you the performance would be nothing.

And so, as Oklahoma! came to a close, rehearsals started for not only our Christmas show, ‘Step into Christmas’ but also 2020′s production of ‘West Side Story’. Look out for more details in the near future, and we hope you’ll join us again at Exmouth Pavilion.

A First Place at Exmouth Carnival 2019!

After a Parkrun in the rain, the cast of Oklahoma got together to take part in Exmouth’s Carnival on Saturday evening.

The rain didn’t let us down and it was certainly a wet evening! However, this didn’t dampen our spirits and we’re pleased to say we were awarded first place for the Best Walking Group.

We’d like to say a big thank you to committee members who gave up their day to create “a surrey with a fringe on top”, World of Countrylife for lending us their beautiful wooden cart and Avocet Heron for providing a vehicle – we couldn’t have done it without their support.
