It’s scripts away (for most people) as the show date for Raw Talent’s Christmas production looms ever closer.


Action packed rehearsals for Raw Talent’s ‘Panto That Doesn’t Go Quite Right.’

Our Christmas show Raw Talent’s ‘Panto That Doesn’t Go Quite Right’ will be performed at Clifton Road in just a few weeks so we’d thought we’d whet your appetite with a few photos until the big day.

We’ve got more show’s for you!

As I’m sure you are all aware 2018 has already been a very busy time for everyone at Raw Talent. We have already had two amazing improv nights with both our 6-11 and 11-16 group giving them the chance to show off their skill and we also reach the semi finals of the All England Theatre Festival.

But now both Raw Talent groups are getting ready to perform their very own original comedy performance. Each idea was the creation of the group and was then taken away and scripted by Phil Hyde and Sami Cornick (Award winning original comedy writers).

“Bex Factor” the story of young trillionaire who struggles to make friends will be performed by the 6-11 group.

Where as the 11-16 group will be serving time at Hawthorns Educational Leisure Lodge. A residential for pupils which is not as squeaky clean as it seems.

Both of these shows are being rehearsed at the moment ready to be performed at the end of term in July.

Raw Talent got some more Silverware at The Swan Theatre!

After a long and hilarious road Raw Talent reached the All England Theatre Festival Semi-finals in Worcester on Saturday 12th May.

After what many would say was the performance of the evening and although they were unsuccessful in going any further in the competition Raw Talent were presented with the Adjudicators Award for most Entertaining production.

After eight months of Raw Talent working on the script Planet of the Capes the group went out on a high after giving the audience an incredibly skilled and hysterical performance which led to the group picking up the award.

The group have shown great commitment to the festival and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Raw Talent would not have been able to perform to the standard that they did without the ongoing support of all the parents who have been generous with their time, energy and enthusiasm.

We would also like to thank The Hive for generously donating rehearsal so Raw Talent were fully prepared for the evening at the The Swan Theatre.

Long live Raw Talent!

The adjudicator mentioned the word "community" last night and he's right - kids and families all joined together caught up in this amazing crazy "family" you've created. Long may it continue - Judy Gardener Raw Talent Parent
