BYT are extremely excited to announce our 2010 Summer Production. This is the 150th anniversary of the birth of JM Barrie and we will be performing an outdoor production of his most famous work, ‘Peter Pan’. John Haswell, the founding director of BYT will direct this classic story of fantasy and fairies, pirates and adventure about the little boy who never grew up. This is the perfect tale for our 21st anniversary year. Rehearsals are from Saturday 24th July - 3rd August. Performances 5th - 8th August Many of the young people involved in BYT have gone on to have professional careers within acting, film, journalism and the arts sector but all the young people involved become more positive and confident as a result of their time with the youth theatre. All productions employ professional staff and use industry standard equipment. This gives the young people in BYT a more valuable experience and a better grounding for any drama they might go on to do after leaving school. Financing a professional production standard is expensive and can cost up to £15,000 per production. The young people involved do pay a participation fee and performance tickets are sold but even so each production runs with a deficit of around 40%. If you can please help us to provide this wonderful learning experience for young people in the Scottish Borders.
