BUDDING young actors are invited to take part in a week-long theatre project during the school summer holidays.

Dorchester Youth Theatre's SummerMT@DYT will involve youngsters aged between 10 and 18 taking part in a production in a week from August 19 to 23 at Sunninghill Community Centre in Dorchester.

They will get the chance to take part in comedy, drama, song and dance and a chance to try something new. It's not just for those who already excel in performing arts, spokesman Carol Burgess said.

She added: "It builds friendships, promotes team work and most of all – it's fun. Participants return each year along with new members and lasting friendships are made."

Fees apply and participants need to be available for the whole week. For more details see dorchyouththeatre.co.uk or call 01305 266926.
