Our big dramatic performance of 2003 alongside our musicals was an adaptation of Dracula directed by Beryl-Anne Whitehead (her first directorial role following her marriage to Dom) and was a way of allowing our more theatrical members to perform alongside the big musical productions we were now performing as well. It also marked a return to the Commemoration Hall.

Directors Message

It is so nice to be back at The Commemoration Hall to perform Dracula, the last major production I directed was “Alice in Wonderland” which was a turning point for HYT. I am pleased to say that so many of the young students that performed in that production still remain with us and will once again show their talents in this. They are joined for this performance by many new and talented members and I am very proud of each and every one of them. I am sure you will join me in wishing them every success in this show and all other future productions.

Chairmans Message

Fresh from its recent theatrical successes “School for Scandal” and “Some Like it Hot” HYT tackle the Gothic classic “Dracula”.

In the six years since the group was founded, I can safely say that no two shows have been the same. The leadership and our young members remain as ambitious as ever for HYT as our current program demonstrates.

HYT, now a registered educational charity has recently won one of six prestigious Lloyds TSB Foundation Awards from a list of 4500 groups and have received invitation to perform in both Hungary and Italy.

Huntingdon Town Council support remains an important platform for HYT, and it is with great pleasure that we renew our tenure of the Commemoration Hall for this production.

We hope that we will take your support with us too, as we move on to ever bigger and better things.
