Performers prepare to take to the stage in memory of Annabel

Leamington Editorial 5th Nov, 2023   0

PERFORMERS in Warwick are taking to the stage in memory of a much-loved young girl.

A Doorway to the Stars will be staged at Myton Upper School Hall in tribute to 11 year-old Annabel Greenhalgh who passed away suddenly last year.

Proceeds from the show, a mixture of singing, dancing and drama, will go to Annabel’s parents’ chosen charities, the Birmingham Children’s Hospital, where Annabel received treatment, and The Fluency Trust, who help young people with a stammer.

Amelia Fewtrill, who wrote ‘A Doorway to the Stars’, which has led to the formation of Raise the Roof Theatre Company, said: “We are a small group of performers, professional and amateur, across all age groups, from the local community, all coming together for this important cause.

“We’d love as many people as possible to come and enjoy our show, remember Annabel and help raise funds for two worthy causes.”

The performances, which are sponsored by Blythe Liggins Solicitors, take place on Friday November 17 at 7.30pm and Saturday November 18 at 2.30pm and 7.30pm. Tickets are £5 each and can be purchased by emailing [email protected]

Donna Bothamley, head of wills and probate at Blythe Liggins , said: “A Doorway to the Stars promises to be a fitting tribute to Annabel and we are so pleased to see how the community has come together to support this event.

“We’re sure it will raise plenty of money for the charities that played such an important part of Annabel’s life.”
