YOUNGSTERS at Soham's Viva Youth Theatre made a triumphant return to the Edinburgh Fringe festival.
An 18-strong cast and four crew performed Back to the 80s at the festival from August 14-18.
Project organiser Jenny Roberts said the five-night run had exceeded the group's expectations and followed the success of Viva's production at the festival last year.
"It was absolutely brilliant," she said.
"It was the experience that made it for the kids involved - I think some of them were over-awed but we got on really well."
The production, which featured songs from the 1980s based around an American high school storyline, earned them a sell-out show and a four-star review - the best possible - from one critic.
