THERE was something to sing and dance about for members of WODYs after a fantastic fundraising effort.

Members of Worcester Operatic and Dramatic Society’s Youth Section (WODYS) and their mums joined the Race for Life in a bid to raise £1,000 for Cancer Research UK.

Beverly Abbs, WODYS publicity officer, said: “We had a team of ten.

"Other members would have liked to have joined in but they were rehearsing for Footloose.’’

The 71 members of WODYS are staging Footloose at Worcester’s Swan theatre from Tuesday, August 5 to Saturday, August 9.

Tickets are available from the Worcester Live box office at Huntingdon Hall on 01905 611427.
