Raising the Roof!
Wolverhampton's party town image was taken to London when youngsters raised the roof with a special performance at the Dome. Around 80 youngsters performed a vibrant fusion of dance and drama for a thrilled audience at the London attraction last Thursday.
The stunning show featured a cast made up of Wolverhampton's finest dancers, musicians and actors. Those taking part fought off tough competition from 400 others who auditioned for a part in the special show as well as a professional team from Zip Theatre.

Young Wolverhampton performers explode on to the national stage today as more than
70 dancers and musicians stole the show at the Millennium Dome. The stunning Wulfdance

Wolverhampton's show was watched by a packed auditorium of people from the town as well as other Dome visitors. The talented cast, made up of about 60 young performers aged between 14 and 24 and professional actors, musicians and dancers, depicted the rich diversity of the town seen through the eyes of a stranger.
Narrated by "Lady Wulfruna", Wulfdance will go on to be performed at Wolverhampton Town Show on Saturday in West Park and again at Wulfrun Hall on July 20.
Two further performances were due to take place this afternoon in the Dome theatre watched by visiting Wolverhampton councillors and other VIPs.
Show choreographer Jennie Burke, who plays central character Firedancer, said: "The Kids have loved the whole thing. We have had a full house at all the rehearsals. It's been hard work but great fun"
