Sessions were held at Perton Civic Centre through August and were well attended by new members of the theatre group.

After rehearsing hard, the youngsters performed 'Mary Poppins Returns (...again)!' featuring songs, dances and the script from both the original and new Mary Poppins films.

Stacey Smith, Director of J.A.M Youth Theatre, said: "The children have worked so hard during the four days of rehearsal. It's been brilliant to watch them achieve so much in such a short amount of time.

"I have been so impressed by the talent and commitment by each and everyone of them."

J.A.M has weekly theatre classes launching in September at Perton Civic Centre.

This begins with a free trial session on the 6th September at 3.45pm open to children aged five to 16.
