Young performers are offering a “feast of song and dance” in their debut production next month.

Youth theatre company Phoenix-KYT was launched last year and now it is just weeks until curtain up on their first show.

Be Our Guest will feature musical numbers from a range of favourites, including The Lion King, Matilda, Bugsy, Beauty and the Beast and more.

The group, ranging in age from 10 to 17, have already given audiences a preview of their talents, performing musical numbers to an audience of 100 and singing alongside a visiting choir from Keynsham’s twin town Libourne.

Now they will be taking to the stage in their own full production and are inviting people to join the audience at Broadlands Academy from Thursday, March 31, to Saturday, April 3.

Shows will start at 7.30pm, with a matinee on the Saturday at 2.30pm.

Tickets are available from the box office on 07437 958046 or by emailing phoenixkyt@outlook.com. Tickets are £8 and £6 or a family ticket at £25 (for two adults and two children) is available.

Phoenix-KYT is led by members of Keynsham Light Opera Group, under the direction of Joanne Meredith, and offers a wide range of theatre experience, from backstage and front of house to singing, dancing and acting onstage.

The group meets at Broadlands Academy on Tuesday evenings – for more information, visit www.phoenixkyt.co.uk.
