Ballad of Jessica James
by Geoff Bamber
Directed by Rosemary Gowers
Jessica James harbours an ambition to live a life of adventure in the American Wild West and sets out to realise that ambition fortified by her grandma's homemade blueberry and cinnamon flapjack. Penniless and using the flapjack as currency, she reaches the town of Boulder Gulch, deep in the 'Badlands' of Arizona. Unfortunately Jessica's arrival coincides with that of the infamous Killer Diller Miller Gang intent upon robbing the town's bank. The convenient annual holiday taken by the sheriff of Boulder Gulch sees Jessica volunteered to take over the job and face up to the outlaws who are unlikely to be impressed by offers of flapjack. This play will be performed by the younger youth members.

Directed by Corrina

The orchestra of Ridley Road, a state school, is to give a concert in Moscow at the European Festival of Youth, playing Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony before an audience of cultural bigwigs. But their instruments have been impounded by Customs. Luckily, Alex, the Russian who cleans the hall, is a devout ‘Pinball Wizard’ fan who comes up with a plan that saves everyone.
