Another great mention for our debut show.

Standing ovation for Wincanton Youth Theatre’s debut show

The Blackmore Vale Magazine had this to say about our show:

“Wincanton Youth Theatre staged their first show A Spoonful of Sugar in the town’s Memorial Hall to a capacity audience. The cast presented 18 acts and enjoyed a standing ovation as the audience – like Oliver Twist – demanded more. An encore of the opening number, Oom pah pah, had everyone joining in.”

Wincanton Town Festival, Sept 2016


We were delighted to take part in the Wincanton Town Festival on 17 September 2016. After surprising shoppers at Morrisons with a polished flash mob, we headed to Redfearns in the town. After fortifying ourselves with milkshakes and cake, we performed a few solo numbers from our forthcoming show. Then, we spent an hour on Wincanton High Street, delighting passers-by with ensemble performances.  A great day, and we had a wonderful time.

Hauser and Wirth Summer party

The Wincanton Youth Theatre were delighted to be asked to perform again at the annual Hauser and Wirth Summer Party in Bruton this weekend. The festival had a circus theme, with a host of circus-inspired performances, family activities, vintage fairground rides, arts & crafts workshops, children’s theatre, and local food & drink stalls. As part of a fabulous line-up of musical performers, the group opened the event in the shade of a circus Big Top tent.

Theatre producer, Andrew Warren, said “I am constantly amazed by the talent of our group. These youngsters only just finished a WW1 commemorative show and, two weeks later, are performing an entirely new set in completely different surroundings, and with great commitment. Not only that, in the intervening weekend, they all auditioned for our Christmas show, Oliver!”

The event was attended by over 5,000 visitors across the weekend, and raised a total of £7,000 for education and nature conservation charity Carymoor Environmental Trust. The Wincanton Youth Theatre are happy to have played their part in raising these funds for such a worthwhile local charity.
