The Phoenix Showstoppers is a drama group which has been around for a long time. They are former customers and staff from the Moorend day service who now access services at Hillside and The Bridge Project based in the community. They do some fabulous plays and pantomimes in which everyone gets a part to play, regardless of their ability. The Phoenix Showstoppers raise money for charity and have done a lot of campaigning on issues which matter to them such as bullying and removing barriers to communication.
