YOUNG creatives in the Wee County gathered at the Tillicoultry Baptist Church on Monday for the first day of the Ochil Youths Community Improvement Play in a Week.

A group of youngsters, aged between 10 and 13, joined forces to bring their rough ideas together ahead of the show this Friday, February 21.

Kat Wilson, drama artist at the OYCI, said: "First day went really good, it's a play in a week so the first day they bring in all their ideas and then they work all week to make a play.

"They came up with lots of good ideas today.

"They need no encouragement, they didn't need any help and came up with their own ideas."

A lot of the kids do drama with the OYCI already and attend the weekly classes so Kat is familiar with most; however, there were a few new faces in attendance.

The play, on Friday afternoon, will be a family and friends only event.

Kat added: "Monday is always funny because you don't know what it's going to be like."

The OYCI done several play in a week sessions in the summer and Kat was pleased to see lots of the kids return and bring that experience with them.

For those interesting in drama, OYCI have a youth theatre night every Monday.

The weekly sessions take place at Tillicoultry Baptist Church from 6.30-8.30pm and is free for kids aged 10 and above.
