Children aged 7 to 16 from the well known Bath Theatre School have been putting in some extra rehearsal time to prepare for a very special performance, which saw them visit a professional recording studio in aid of Children in Need.

One question we don’t ask ourselves enough is why do we do amateur theatre? We probably don’t give the same main answer each time.

How do you plan your next season or production? If you’re lucky enough to be a large group performing several productions a year or a smaller group with just one or two productions a year, what do you take into consideration? Do you have a play reading committee or do potential directors submit plays they would like to direct? Or is it a discussion between every member of the group in the pub after rehearsals? Or is it a mixture between all of the above? And what is the best way of deciding? Do you consider what your potential audience might pay to see, or is the strengths of your potential cast more important? Do you support new writing or do you stick to the old favourites?
