Scenes from a Quarantine


May 2021

After postponing our AGM in 2020 and to maintain continuity, our Committee members agreed to keep their posts until we can hold an AGM. Membership is usually renewed after the AGM, so those of you who were members in 2019/20 continued to be members for another year.
We really do not want to postpone our AGM again and can't wait until the covid restrictions are fully removed, so will be organising something in early May via Zoom or similar.
We will email members with details as soon as we have them.

Main Hall

With the Covid restrictions being eased, we very much hope to resume YTG after the next step in the Government roadmap - on 20 May. Please watch our Facebook page for the latest news.
Although numbers may initially be limited,
we have cleared our waiting list and will have a few spaces for new members. Contact YTG Director Tosh if you are interested in joining.


Jun / Jul 21

We will resume Plays for Pleasure once we can meet up safely again indoors at the Kellbank.
Subject to the governemt restrictions, this will be in June or July.
We can't wait .....

Following a remarkable effort in Covid affected 2020, we have set dates for the 2021 Summer Workshop.
It may have to follow the format of 2020, but hopefully will be able to take the format of previous years.
A full week of fun learning about all aspects of staging a show, followed by a performance on the Saturday evening.
To find out how the week works, click here for 2020 or here for 2019.

Sat 16 Oct

We have had a play lined up for Spring or Autumn 2020 and Spring 2021, but all had to be postponed due to Coronavirus.
Let's hope we can get back to normal for an Autumn Play - something to lift our spirits after a year of theatrical misery. We will give more information and advertise dates for auditions as soon as we know.


Wednesday 19
to Saturday 22
January 2022

We had to cancel out panto for Jan 2021 but we are keeping the script for next time because it's a really good one - "Beauty and the Beast" from Tom Whalley Pantomimes.
Tom wrote Alice in Wonderland (Jan 2019) so that's a great start.

Rehearsals will begin in early November 2021, after auditions sometime in October.
Watch out for the dates if you want to get involved.
