New theatre group for Glossop

A new theatre group will launch in Glossop this week.

The Starlight Theatre Community, which is open to anyone over 16, is all about creating confidence, having fun and making friends, through the art of drama.

Sessions take place every Tuesday at The Commercial Inn, Glossop, starting on January 20 and running from 7pm to 9pm.

The group will aim to put on two shows a year using the skills, ideas and abilities of the members involved.

The committee is composed of a close group of friends who share an enthusiasm for drama and want to bring the community of Glossop together.

Nicole Williams, the chair of the committee, said: “Starlight Theatre came about because we noticed the limited opportunities in Glossop to take part in this sort of activity. We wanted to create a fun yet productive environment for people to use their creativity and achieve something to be proud of.”

The first session is free. Classes thereafter cost £5 per person. For further information, contact
