Music Theatre 4 Youth is an admirable organisation which doesn't give up on our young people. Tonight young people from some of Belfast's most deprived areas will take part in a professionally-staged musical thanks to the innovative work of the organisation.
It recognises that talent can lie anywhere. The challenge is to find it and then channel it positively, often with astounding results.
These results don't just happen. They come from encouragement, example and sheer hard work, valuable lessons for any young person.
But the young people respond. They just want to be given a chance.
