Rock Nativity!

IMG 0101

Between December 20th and December 22nd 2012, young people from Enter CIC performed Rock Nativity. The show is a musical based on the Christmas story and penned by David Woods. Enter CIC were granted performance rights from Josef Weinberger earlier in the year. The show features a lovely score and our young people rose to the vocal challenge and amazed everyone with their talent.IMG 0101

In the lead up to the performance our young people worked incredibly hard. We are very proud of them. Anyone who knows about Enter knows how hard we push our young people to achieve and the type of training and life skills they receive. I am pleased to be able to inform you that all of their hard work paid off and they once again reaped the benefits of their hard work at the end of their performances.

It was clear to see that the audience were not only astounded by what they had witnessed, but that they were blown away by the fact that these young talented performers were members of their own community.

Once again it was very clear to see how the funding from Big Lottery is not only raising the aspiration and building better futures for our young people, but that it is directly benefitting and impacting the local community.

IMG 0107It is astounding how many times people come up to us after one of our productions and tell us that they did not expect such a high standard of work from young people. They then frequently tell us that the work the young people are producing is on a par with many productions they see in the West End.

Those of you who are regular attendees at our performances know that this is true and that our young people really are very talented and unique.

We were delighted to receive such wonderful feedback about our production and although it isn’t possible to feature all feedback, please take a look below for a snap shot of some of the comments we received after the performance.
