Older actors take centre stage

A THEATRE company for the over 60s entertained visitors to Whitley Bay Library as part of the Age Takes Centre Stage event.

Cloudburst Theatre Group, which formed in July last year, is a community-based group whose oldest member is in their 90s.

Based at the Meadows Community Centre, in Meadowell, their aim is to provide entertainment for the over 60s, with several of the group ‘treading the boards’ since they were teenagers.

Their performance at Whitley Bay Library consisted of six scetches, ranging from a musical mime routine to a monologue from Billy Elliot.

The group curently has 15 members but is always on the lookout for new people, with their next worshop on stagecraft taking place on November 15.
