New theatre company, AbChoir, have come together for the musical Bare. Among those taking part will be group member, Laura Dow, 16 from Pitmedden.

AbChoir Theatre Company producer and musical director, David Small, said: “Through discussions with members, we determined social issues important to them, including equality, relationships and the way in which minorities are perceived by society.

“Our performance allows the cast to explore these issues and ensure the message will reach the wider community.”

Laura will be playing one of the principal parts, Ivy.

She said: “Bare has become such a massive part of my life recently and I’m so glad I got involved with it.

“The rehearsals are always great fun and I’ve made so many new friends.

“I can’t wait to perform the show to an audience to see them fall in love with the characters as much as I have!”

Bare, The Musical, by Jon Hartmere Jr and Damon Intrabartolo, tells the story of five high school seniors at a Catholic boarding school. The story zooms in on the relationship between two male pupils. This is a tale of love, religion and friendships.

The musical will be on at Somebody Cares (Old Dobbies Garden Centre), Hazlehead. Performances are on Friday, September 6 and Saturday, Septmber 7. Both shows begin at 7.30pm with doors opening at 7pm.

Tickets are £10 and are available the Somebody Cares Charity Shop in Hazlehead.
