A teenage girl with a rare disorder is the inspiration behind a show taking place at Dunchurch Village Hall on Saturday.

Bilton fundraiser Meg Cubitt is one of the organisers of a variety evening along with friend Suzy Davenport.

It will feature singing, acting and dancing is on the agenda for one night only at Dunchurch Village Hall, in aid of the Turner Syndrome Support Society.

Featuring performances of hit songs from musical favourites Les Miserables, Wicked and Annie, as well as scenes from iconic plays such as Blood Brothers, Educating Rita and Macbeth, the show promises a night of fantastic talent from young performers.

Meg, 17, who was diagnosed with Turner Syndrome at the age of nine, is the UK teen representative for the TSSS. She said: “Part of my role is to give something back for the lifelong friends and support that TSSS has given me, raising not only vital funds, but awareness of this rare condition.”

Females with Turner syndrome often have a wide range of symptoms and some distinctive characteristics. Two that occur in almost all cases of Turner syndrome are being shorter than average and infertility.

Meg added: “Performing is my passion so with the help of my friends, the show seemed like the perfect way to help my charity”.

Former Rugby High School student Suzy added “We have all worked incredibly hard at rehearsals to make this night a big success. We’ve already sold our unwanted items at a car boot and completed a sponsored ten mile walk, so the show is the culmination of our fundraising and it would be great to perform to a full house.”

The show takes place at Dunchurch Village Hall from 7.30pm. Tickets are £5 each and are available from Suzy Davenport by telephoning 07722 144165.
