BUDDING thespians who have dreamt of treading the boards may have the opportunity to let the Genie out of the lamp and take part in a new production of 1001 Nights.

Rehearsals will then take place every Thursday from 6.30-9pm during term time until next April when the show will be staged.
House of Talent workshops are run by youth arts specialists and include circus and acrobatics, dance, drama, film and animation.
