Programme Change

Posted by on Jan 8, 2016 in Committee Announcements, News |

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, there have been some changes to the intended programme for 2016.  Our intended performance of “The Village Hall” has been deferred until a later date, and instead, we will be performing a brand new musical variety production.  Details will be released very soon!  Our intended Autumn production of “Fawlty Towers” has been cancelled due to licensing restrictions now put in place.  We will be announcing our replacement production as soon as possible.

On a more positive note, we are delighted to announce that this year’s Summer School production will be a brand new version of the JM Barrie classic, “Peter Pan”.  Places will go on sale very soon for this, our twelfth Barton Young Players production!

We are delighted to confirm that Snow White was a huge success for us both critically and financially, and means we can look to the future with a degree of security.  Keith has announced that he has presented the Directors Cup to the Whole cast, and the Producers Cup to the whole crew.  After much thought, he felt that it would be unfair to single out anyone in a production that was so heavily reliant on team work.
