Winscombe Youth Theatre (WYT) is celebrating its 26th anniversary this Saturday by presenting Hen House Horrors in the main hall at Churchill Academy.

The Winscombe performers are taking on John Buttler’s musical, telling the tale of a nightmare holiday for a group of old ladies who visit a Somerset farm infested with rats.

WYT is staging two showings of this must-see musical, with curtains rolling at 11.30am and 3.30pm.

The cast is made up of more than 60 youngsters, ranging in ages from four to 16.

Tickets for this show can be purchased from The Florist Shop in Winscombe, or by calling 01934 842004. Admission is priced at £10 for adults and £7 for children.

WYT began staging productions in 1990, offering expert training for under-18s in drama, singing and dance.

The group is hoping to recruit more members for their future productions, with specialised classes for different age groups held on Saturday mornings at Churchill Academy.

Students are taught by a team of dedicated teachers, and regularly enter for Lamda examinations in acting, verse and prose at art festivals.

For more information on the group, contact WYT-founder Theresa Hemming on 01934 843952.
