All Saints Sea Scouts

Eco-play to raise money for Tanzania orphans

All Saints Sea Scouts

Tomorrow 28 January All Saints Sea Scouts and Guides will travel from their home territory in Four Oaks, Sutton Coldfield to Bloxwich to perform a play based on global climate change, poverty, pollution and endangered species.

The play, which is taking place  at Aldridge Parish Church tonight (Friday) at 7pm, then tomorrow (Saturday) at Bookmark Theatre in Elmore Row, Bloxwich at 2pm and finally at the Willenhall Youth and Community Centre (CHART) on 4 February at 7pm. is called Harvest Home (World Citizen).

The story is told through drama, music, dance, poetry and singing and was written by Walsall’s temporary Poet Laureate,  assistant scout leader Ian Henery.  All proceeds will go to a charity called Forever Angels (set up by a former All Saints Sea Scout), which is an orphanage in Tanzani, Africa catering for orphans, abandoned children and children who are HIV positive.

The play also features Brownies and Rainbows from All Saints who will be singing their version of the Beatles classic “All You Need is Love” with music by “Maestro” Tim Philpot from the Scout Network, himself a very talented folk musician who has appeared in a number of venues including the Welsh Folk Festival in 2011.

The core performers in this production appeared in the 2011 Sutton Coldfield Scout Gang Show, which performed in front of 1600 people over 6 nights at Bishop Vesey School.

So why not go along, support a worthy cause and enjoy a play which is both fun and thought-provoking?   All proceeds to Forever Angels.
