Rising stars emerge from The Hunslet Rogues

Three local youngsters, members of the Hunslet Rogues, have secured parts on television and in the West End.

The Hunslet Rogues is a South Leeds theatre company based at The Hunslet Club. The group is bursting with talent, as these young performers showcase dedication, commitment and enthusiasm at each and every Wednesday session from 6-8pm.

Budding young stars come to these sessions to start their journey into exploring the world of dance, drama, singing and musical theatre, and three members of the many rising stars in these sessions have currently moved onto the next step in their journey. Oliver, Kian, and Annabel have secured roles in different shows due to their incredible talent and hard work!

Oliver, one of the longest-standing Rogues members, has landed the role of Alan on the new BBC mini-series ‘Boat Story’. This drama/thriller mini-series showcases stars such as Tchéky Karyo as The Tailor and Joanna Scanlan, who also starred in the comedy Getting On.

Annabel is the next rising star, and she stepped right into the spotlight when she joined the Rogues due to her talent, hard work, and passion. Recently, she featured in a TV series that needs no introduction, Waterloo Road.

Kian is known for his powerful songs and has landed a role in a new West End Show, ‘Across the Line.’ His powerful voice will light up the stage, and he will go far on this exciting journey due to his hard work and talent.

These are just three amazingly talented young people attending The Hunslet Rogues sessions, as the room is bursting with musical and theatrical talent. These three rising stars have worked incredibly hard, and they all should be immensely proud of their commitment.

We cannot begin to describe how much dedication these young stars show, not just these three remarkable stars but all the young people involved in The Hunslet Rogues Theatre Company, and we are sure we will be sharing more rising star stories.

Young people are welcome to join the Rogues Drama group on a Wednesday. No booking is required; sign in at The Hunslet Club reception.
