Blag Youth Theatre Celebrate 20 years of Summer schools.

Blag Youth Theatre Celebrate 20 years of Summer schools.

‘Way way back many centuries ago…’ well not quite but 20 years ago in July, Blag Youth will celebrate 20 years of producing their unique Summer Project, with a production of ‘Matilda and The Chocolate Factory’ at The Elgiva Theatre on August 6th at 2:30pm.

Ricky and Lynn Beaumont first met in ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ some 30 years ago and started passing on their acting skills to children in the 1990’s. Their first Summer production was ‘Pinocchio…Don’t Touch me their I’m Still Tacky’ at Watersmeet Theatre, Rickmansworth in 1996 with 125 children .Since then they have written and produced children’s shows which has given, literally, hundreds of children a summer to remember.

This Summer to celebrate their 20th anniversary they are inviting any Ex-Blaggers to join them up on stage for the notorious ‘Toilet Song’ which Blag fans will remember being featured in their Christmas show at The Pump House Watford and in the youth production of ‘Dotty’, ‘The Wizard of Oz…ish!’

‘Matilda and The Chocolate Factory’ has influences of TV’S ‘Once Upon a Time’ and entwines these two West End favourites. Blag Youth has an all inclusive policy so there are no entry conditions, the only requirement is that the children have bags of energy, as, unlike other summer schools, Blag’s day runs from 10am-6pm Monday to Friday. At the end of two weeks the children take to the stage and perform a full musical production, which boasts a speaking part for each child, from the youngest 7 year old to the oldest 17 year old.

After the matinee on August the 6th ex Blaggers will be invited to join Ricky and Lynn in the bar as they toast the 20th Summer Project.
So if you are an ex Blagger please do get in touch by emailing and get your name on the guest list.

If you would like to join this year’s Summer Project please call 01923 772320 and register your interest then come along to our Audition Day on June 26th a Chorleywood Memorial Hall at 2pm.
