The Railway Children are on the Right Track
The King’s Lynn Players latest production, The Railway Children, has teamed up with local charity the Benjamin Foundation to help collect money for their Right Tracks Centre.
Based in Lynn they want to end youth homelessness and are tackling the problem locally by providing accommodation to 12 young homeless people aged 16 to 25.
They give them a stable home and the skills they need so they can forge an independent life.
Tom Clarke, King’s Lynn Players publicity officer, said: “The story of The Railway Children begins with the lives of three children whose comfortable, middle class existence ends when their father has to go away unexpectedly. Roberta, Peter and Phyllis have to leave their home and all they know to start a new life.
“We felt the Right Tracks project was such a worthy cause and fitted with the play so well that we will be collecting money after each performance for the organisation.”
Director Sharon Fox added “The cast are so pleased to be teaming up with the Right Tracks Centre. We are getting close to showtime now and let’s hope we can also collect lots of money for the charity too!”
Through the words of Station Master, Mr Perks, the story of Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis is brought to life. Their world is turned upside down when unbeknown to them, their Father is imprisoned for selling state secrets. With their Mother, they move to Three Chimneys Cottage in the country. The railway near their new home becomes the focal point for a series of adventures which bring new friendships, love and dramas that unite the whole community.
