Feline fun for shoppers

Some of the young performers from the Wight Stars production of Cats.

THERE was a surprise for shoppers in Newport this lunchtime thanks to Isle of Wight theatre group Wight Stars.

The youth theatre company is performing Cats at Medina Theatre this weekend and decided to give shoppers a sneak preview.

Dressed in full feline fashion the group of young stage stars was spotted roaming through the town, climbing up lampposts and on to benches, as well as darting in and out of shops.

Tickets are available by calling (01983) 472465.

Surely a comment like " Shouldn't they be at school
?" Suggests that their being elsewhere was somewhat remiss. If a person was to comment on, for arguments sake, a comment made midday, would it be ok to ask " shouldn't he be at work?". As for the cane, I could take it.

Michael, at no time have i critised students only within your tiny mind, i simply asked a question and apologised for a grammaitical error, and bye the way there was no such thing as home education in my days. Maybe it is you that wants the caning?

@Tony. It is a little rich then, don't you think, that you should criticise these students for an assumed truancy on your part when at the very same time you are acknowledging your own disciplinable behaviour. I do KNOW a number of children who studied with Wight Stars to gain credits and points towards other qualifications. I also KNOW that some of the students are elective home educated using their time to study subjects relevant to their particular career path of choice. I also KNOW that some of the students are on an internship gaining valuable exoerience. Maybe the home educated ones got fed up of naughty boys being disruptive in English. Remember, I is always capitalised. You don't want a caning now, do you?

Michael, " I am pretty certain " and "I would guess" are not providing facts so i am not really interested in your posting, but i do apologize for my misplacement of the apostrophe. I was probably getting a caning from the Headmaster whilst this particular part of English was being taught.

@Tony. I am pretty certain that the Wight Stars organisation delivers legitimate and accredited qualifications in all aspects of theatre performance and production etc. Maybe the students are at school but not 'in' school. I would guess that the trip into town was all about promotion of the show, as most professional theatres would do. Rather like a student being out of school and in industry for a work experience placement. As a side comment. It is "shouldn't" and not "should'nt". Anybody who went to school should know that.
