The cast were out to promote their new show ‘Can’t Stop the Beat’ and were thrilled to receive such a warm welcome from the public in Culver Square.

Sherrie, who’s been with the group for eight years, was pleased with the crowd’s reactions.

I love when we get to perform and see the smiles on everyone’s faces watching us and clapping along to our songs.

Crafty Drama Support Worker Rachel Mason said the group has been practising since July and can’t wait to wow everyone with their show in November at St Botolph’s Church.

As an entirely inclusive drama group we have members with varying learning disabilities. As directors of the show, our pride comes from seeing members improve over months of practise and their confidence growing. It’s truly wonderful.
