It was jazz hands-arama in the Phoenix FM studio this week when Jake Hunter brought in not one, but two of the extremely talented groups he’s involved in.

Jake is a regular visitor to Naomi Sayers’ Feelgood Saturday show which broadcasts at 10am every Saturday morning. Naomi regularly features some of the many gifted thespians we have in our area.

First up were Jess and Jamie from BOSSY – the Brentwood-based Youth Theatre Group who have talent to spare! They’re doing Legally Blonde for their next venture in November, at the Brentwood Theatre.

Then came Anita and Caroline from Benfleet Operatic Society – whose production of Fiddler on the Roof is a contrast to the froth and energy of Legally Blonde, but no less entertaining…
