Youth Theatre Group

Youth Theatre Group

This is the Award Winning Junior branch of BATS (Barrow Arts and Theatre Society) which is, in turn, part of BUSCA. Membership consists of approximately 50 young people from 8 years +. Usually rehearsals start in April each year to produce a junior musical of high quality in the middle of November. This has been interrupted by Covid-19. Rehearsals have been on Wednesday evenings in Humphrey Perkins School but a future venue will need to be determined.

Members are directed and coached by trained experts and they gain in confidence and skill. This includes children who wish to get involved in lighting and sound skills. The group is supported by a large number of adults who are DBS checked. All the adults in this thriving theatre group are volunteers and we are always looking for new help.

There is an annual membership fee plus a small costume charge. Auditions are usually held in April and May and we don't operate a waiting list.

Holy Trinity Christmas Tree Festival - Our Entry

Season for 2020

After our record-breaking production of Hairspray in November 2018 we achieved even greater heights in 2019 with our production of Oliver with all tickets sold out three weeks before the show. Enjoy some of our superb photos.

Abi Crossley, our Director is thrilled with the way things are shaping up with this aspirational group.

We had hoped to perform Legally Bond in November 2020 but this was obviously cancelled due to the pandemic.

It is extremely unlikely that we will be able to produce Hairspray in 2021 but it is hoped to start up as soon as it is possible.
