An afternoon of thought-provoking entertainment should keep many 14 – 25 year olds usefully and enjoyably occupied at the UCKG HelpCentre in the Rainbow Theatre next Saturday (15 November).
The Victory Youth Group (VYG) is staging an afternoon of music and drama entitled ‘No Way Out’. The aim is to raise awareness about the common problems that many young people face, and encourage them to understand that no one has to be stuck in a bad situation forever.
A team of talented VYG performers will be showing off their skills in Street Dance, spoken word poetry and musical drama to illustrate the impact on young lives of such intransigent problems as gang membership, drug addiction, depression/self-harm, suicidal thoughts and abuse.
“Actions have consequences,” said VYG youth mentor Michael Victor. “The solution is to ask yourself the question Where U Going? and answer honestly and thoughtfully. Anyone still can make it in life if they are willing to making the necessary changes.”
The afternoon starts at 1pm with a pre-event talent show. The main event then runs from 2pm – 4.30pm, with the musical drama No Way Out as the central feature. Besides the performance arts, the entertainment includes real life stories and a motivational talk, and ends with a rousing song for all to join in.
