Visitors to York Dungeon were treated to a truly extraordinary performance last night, as SASH young people took over the Dungeon shows!
Budding actors Beth, Ollie, Jess, Jadzia, Abdul, Josh, Susan and Ryan delivered the shows alongside York Dungeon’s regular cast. Over three separate sessions, they amazed and delighted the audience with their skills!
17 year old Ollie, who toook on the part of Judge for the night, reported that he ‘hadn’t had this much fun in a long time. Thank you to the York Dungeon, SASH and especially to Hannah my acting coach, I loved the whole night!’
Our colleague Gary Hogg said: “It’s difficult to put into words what a fantastic night this was for our young people. If I could have bottled the feeling of joy and happiness at the end of the evening I could sell it and make a lot of money! It was a great opportunity for them to try something new, they all threw themselves into the experience and there was a great deal of fun and laughter!”
The event was held as part of our SASH Active programme, which aims to develop our young people’s confidence and offer them new opportunities. It was only possible thanks to the wonderful support of Stuart and John from the management team at York Dungen. We are very grateful to them both for their support.
We also want to say a HUGE thank you to the actors for coaching our young people and for giving up their time for free.
The SASH Active programme relies entirely on the support of organisations and businesses in our local community. If you too would like to offer an activity for our SASH Active programme, please get in touch!
