Songs for a Summer’s Day

By Project Archive

Running PYT is a real joy for all involved, but also brings huge responsibilities. We aspire to do great things and try hard to push boundaries, all whilst managing risks and fulfilling the duty of care that we have for our participants, volunteers and audiences.

With this in mind we have reluctantly taken the decision to cancel our performances on Saturday August 22.

 The last few months have certainly been a tricky time for many of us. We tend to rely on creative experiences to keep our souls alive and give us a sense of purpose, and the COVID pandemic has made that incredibly hard. It has also demonstrated how important our friends are and how much we value spending time with one another. These are all great reasons for us wanting to deliver our project.

The Government guidelines and restrictions make it impossible to deliver a public performance. We had hoped that things would have eased up by now, but that sadly hasn’t been the case.

PYT have assembled a team of professional filmmakers to lead our members and alumni in making a film of all the songs we had planned. We are delighted to still be able to offer all our young people a safe and fulfilling experience and we hope to be able to share our film with you later in the year.

If you have bought tickets to one of the planned performances, we will be in touch to arrange refunds very soon.

CANCELLATION OF EASTER HOLIDAY ACTIVITY 

Following our Management Team planning meeting on Tuesday 17 March 2020 we are sorry to say we have cancelled our Easter Holiday Activity project. The wellbeing and health of the young people taking part, their families, our staff and volunteers is our priority during this unsettling time with the Coronavirus.

All those who had already booked on have been contacted via. email. Any queries please email us at info@pyt.org.uk

Thinking beyond our Easter project we are continuing to plan ahead and will cancel/postpone events should we need to. Our Summer School is planned for 24-27 August – we hope to see you at Bedales for 4 days of ‘fun’. Keep an eye on our website for updates of ‘What’s on’.

We thank you for your understanding and wish you a happy Easter holiday time.

Best Wishes,

The PYT Team 

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

By Project Archive

Step through the wardrobe with PYT this December into the magical kingdom of Narnia. Say hello to a talking faun, meet an unforgettable Lion and join Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter on the most mystical of adventures. Experience what and who they encounter as they are taken away from wartime Britain to a mysterious faraway land ruled by the White Witch. Will good triumph over evil? Will it always be winter, never Christmas? Based on the novel by C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is a classic family favourite that PYT are delighted to be bringing to life this Christmas.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe runs for 9 performances from Tuesday 17 – Sunday 22 December at Petersfield Festival Hall.

Guys and Dolls

By Project Archive

This September PYT are presenting Frank Loesser’s celebrated musical comedy Guys and Dolls. This sizzling, New York tale of gamblers, gangsters and nightclub singers – plus one missionary – features some of Broadway’s greatest show-stoppers, including Luck Be a Lady, Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat and My Time of Day.

Join the teenagers of PYT as they roll the dice and fall in love under the bright lights of Broadway. They will take you on a toe-tapping journey, through cafes of Havana, via Salvation Army meetings and even into the sewers of New York City, to discover if gambling on love really does pay off.

Performances: 18-23 September

Venue: The Festival Hall, Petersfield

Box Office: One Tree Books from Friday 24 August
