A SCARBOROUGH performing arts school is taking to the stage next week to raise cash for a group of students who are visiting Tanzania in July.
Members and guests of the Hatton School of Performing Arts are staging An Evening of Entertainment on Tuesday.
It has been organised by George Pindar Community Sports College student Caitlyn Hill, who is one of a group from the college going to Tanzania for three weeks to help refurbish a primary school and work with the children to improve their English.
She said: “I have been a member of the Hatton School for over 10 years and asked if they would be able to help and they said they would love to. We have an exciting variety of song and dance routines that will appeal to a wide audience.”
The show will feature the Sing and Tonic adult choir, a medley of routines by the Zumba class, and solos from pupils who have recently gained scholarships to performing arts schools, as well as a tribute to Lady Gaga.
In Tanzania the students will also be going on a five-day trek into the rainforest and climbing a mountain. They have undertaken a variety of fundraising events, such as an abseil and car washing.
Caitlyn added: “All the students going to Tanzania are very grateful to Julie Hatton and the members of the school.”
The show is at the YMCA Theatre, St Thomas Street, at 7.30pm on Tuesday. Tickets at £6 are available from the YMCA box office.
