Children's Amateur Theatre Society stages Scrooge and Hairspray to mark half-term in Plymouth
CHILDREN at a city theatrical group won't be kicking their heels this half term – unless it's while performing song and dance routines on stage.
Youngsters at the Children's Amateur Theatre Society (CATS) are staging two productions this week.
Older children, about 25 of them aged 11 to 18, will be high-stepping it in a version of the popular musical hit Hairspray.
Meanwhile, about 40 younger performers, aged from just three to 11, will tread the boards in Scrooge.

Talented 11-year-old Emily Lambert plays the title role in Scrooge, a musical version adapted from Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol by ex-Dr Who Colin Baker and Sheila Wilson.
Hairspray is a version of the smash stage musical, set in 1962 and based around a young girl's desire to perform in a Baltimore TV pop show.
"It's the ultimate feel-good show," said CATS principal Samantha Groves.
Both shows are being performed in the Edgcumbe Theatre, at Devonport High School for Boys.
Scrooge will be staged tomorrow and Wednesday, both at 7pm.
Hairspray will be staged on Fridayand Saturday at 7.30pm, with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm too.
