Tonight, the young members of Stage Door’s Youth Theatre will be back where they belong – ‘rockin’’ the stage at the Pendle Hippodrome in Colne.

Originally booked to perform at The Muni Theatre, the future of the theatre group’s musical was thrown into doubt following the theatre’s announcement of its extended renovations and continued closure.

Thankfully, the Stage Door team were relieved to secure dates at The Pendle Hippodrome and the classic rock musical “We Will Rock You” opens tonight until April 13th, erformed by talented 11-17 years olds from local high schools including Park, FisherMore, West Craven, St. Augustine’s and Bowland High Schools.

Creative leader Janet Philbrook said: “What an exciting return to the stage for our talented young performers. Our youth theatre is so much more than an amateur theatre group, it’s a family and a safe haven for young people in Pendle and beyond. I can’t wait for everyone to see their talent in this fantastic production.”
