Chicago is coming to town

Eastwood students will be bringing a taste of Chicago to the town this weekend.

Pupils from Eastwood Comprehensive School involved in the Young Adults, Young Artists project (YAYA) are turning the Safe Shop, in Nottingham Road, into a scene from the acclaimed Chicago musical, complete with prison.

It is to publicise the programme of plays at Eastwood Theatre. Students are doing extracts from the musical as part of their exams.

The SAFE (Supporting Action For Eastwood) shop is part of a student led project to bring school work and projects out into the community. YAYA is a project funded by the Arts Partnership Nottinghamshire for teenagers in Nottinghamshire.
