Midlothian pupils have the opportunity to take part and perform in the celebrations for the opening of the Borders Railway in September.

P6, P7 and S1 pupils from schools that have previously hosted Rail Respect workshops can now apply to become the cast of “Celebrating the Railway”.

The performers will work with theatre professionals to create and perform a piece of street theatre inspired by the railway and Sir Walter Scott.

They must be available August 10-14 and August 29 and 30 to rehearse. For full info, dates and to apply: http://www.scottishyouththeatre.org/outreach/celebrating-the-railway/
