The 2018 musical Hairspray was an amazing success. Our talented cast produced the most infectious energy that spilled out to our audience each night.

2018 Babes in the Wood

Our 2018 annual family pantomime was Babes in the Wood.  Dame Penelope and Muddles were successfull in their adventures with Maid Marion and Robin Hood to rescue the babes from a fate worse than the Sheriff of Nottingham.

2017 My Fair Lady

Our 2017 musical was the popular My Fair Lady. Based on George Bernard Shaw's classic play Pygmalion, tells the familiar story of Eliza Doolittle, a Covent Garden flower seller who, inspired by phonetician Henry Higgins’ public boast that he could change her social status by teaching her how to speak correctly, turns up at his door asking for lessons in order to fulfil her dream of working in a flower shop. However, Eliza eventually succeeds so well that she outgrows her lowly ambitions, and manages to become an indispensable part of Higgins' life.

2016 Musical - Grease!

Previously only available to school groups, we were one of the first groups to be performing the full adult version of this musical in October 2016, including all your favourite songs from the Movie!
The musical is set in 1959 at fictional Rydell High School and follows ten working-class teenagers as they navigate the complexities of peer pressure, politics, personal core values, and love.

2013 Musical

Based on the novel by Mary Hayley Bell and subsequent Richard Attenborough-produced film, Whistle Down the Wind follows the fortunes of a fugitive caught between the prejudice of adults and the innocence of the young.

2011 Footloose

Based on the hit 80s movie (which launched the careers of Kevin Bacon, Sarah Jessica Parker and Jon Lithgow), FOOTLOOSE has become a stage musical phenomenon. From Broadway to the West End and touring across the UK, and now here in Keighley, there is just no stopping the music.
