In 2005 Barton Players held their first Summer School for young people from Barton and beyond. We have been producing them ever since. They have now evolved from short productions, into full length two act musicals. We have produced everything from Disney to Opera, but since 2012, have produced musicals in partnership with Up-Stage Theatre written by Keith Badham specifically for the Barton Young Players Summer Schools. The Children learn how to Act, Sing, Dance and then create their own Set and Scenery.
Our Summer School ethos is one of everyone being a star. All parts, large or small are as important as eachother. Many of our attendees have gone on to enjoy careers in the performing arts and to study full time.
Over the next few months we will build an archve of the shows that we have performed, and give details of how you can join
