Under One Roof-The Big Homeless musical raises £8000


This unique production featured the sixty strong Unleashed Community Choir singing songs from Rent, Wicked, Godspell, Children of Eden and many other show-stopping numbers. It also featured a host of soloists, drama presented by Unleashed Community Drama Group (made up of folk in recovery) and Doorstep Arts Juicy Theatre. This vibrant one-night only, benefit event for The Leonard Stocks Homeless Centre, shamelessly put the big issue of homelessness in Torbay under the spotlight.
