Wigan junior amateur dramatics group enjoys sensational comeback after two years of Covid restrictions
The acclaimed Willpower Youth Theatre, which has entertained audiences for decades and has been the launchpad for countless professional acting careers, returned this month with a spectacular new show called The Super-Nots Save the Planet.
Written by co-directors Caroline Joynt and Tim Hans Smith (with Tim also writing the music) the production followed the fortunes of a group of super-heroes who don’t actually have any special powers! Featuring 85 young people aged between seven and 20, it ran for four nights at St Michael’s Parish Church Hall in Swinley and among the delighted audience members was the Mayor of Wigan, Coun Yvonne Klieve.
Willpower classes are now all back on from the Monday Infants (age four to six years) through to the Thursday and Saturday Juniors, Inters and Senior classes - all at Whitley Methodist Church, Wigan.
Drama summer school dates have also been confirmed for August 8 to 13 and August 22 to 27.
