A theatre group in the Pocklington area has had its call for equipment answered by a building company.

Housebuilder Linden Homes has taken centre stage by providing a dozen hard hats for the popular Wolds Wonders Theatre Group, which needed them for a forthcoming production.

The group’s latest production ‘Follow That Dream’ is the tale of a budding young dancer who pursues his passion by taking part in a talent contest.

The hats will be used during a music sequence in the opening scene.

Martine Bantick, who is a resident at the Linden Homes Wilberforce Manor, volunteers for the group.

She said: “We have close to 30 members and we are looking to expand the group’s coverage. The work which we do is fantastic for helping those involved to grow in confidence, from taking up new skills and challenging themselves to performing in front of an audience.”

If you would like to volunteer to help out at Wold Wonders, the group would be delighted to hear from you. It meets each Wednesday at the Pocklington Arts Centre, and more details are available from Martine on 07872 186632 or Ged Leach on 07813 156346.

The arts centre is also the venue for Follow That Dream – with a one-off performance taking place on Wednesday 25 May, curtain up at 1.15pm. Tickets priced £4 are available from Pocklington Arts Centre.
